Salman Rushdie.

I don’t generally post about fiction because I think there are enough people writing about it, and my first love is poetry.  But I have to make an exception:  I’m about 20 pages from finishing Salman Rushdie’s new novel, The Enchantress of Florence, and had to put it down because I want to finish it when I won’t be interrupted — it’s that good.  He’s woven a rich tapestry of a story, complicated and beautiful.  I think it’s his best book in years.

  1. I didn’t even know this was out! I loved Midnight’s Children and am so happy to have your recommendation for this one.

  2. Well, Lily, it’s not, quite, yet…but soon! As a bookseller, I have access to advance reading copies (ARC’s) — so when your novel’s coming, make sure I get one! :o)

  3. Ah ha! So THAT”s how it works. As for your ARC, I’ll be sending that along with a box of chocolate. Or nice paperclips. Or, you know, whatever currently floats your boat, the one with two babies in it!

  4. Far be it from me to dissuade you from chocolatey bribes! xo
