Quichotte Reviews

  • Marchpane
    Quichotte is Salman Rushdie’s ode to Don Quixote and a playful take on the current state of the Western World. Enjoyment is by no means guaranteed and will likely depend on: 1. Your tolerance for chaotic, picaresque, hyper-verbal, pastiche, metafictional Pomo carry-on. Vertiginous literarines...

    Oh my goodness. Okay, so you fans of Midnight's Children, behold... Rushdie has gone off the deep end with the sublime, the meta, the satire, and especially the meta. Did I mention meta? I mean, META, BABY.Yes, yes, this is a modern take and full homage to the Cervantes classic, but it's a hell of a...

In this case, the chapters switch p...

    Stories beget stories. And amid nauseating realities, they are probably our only vehicle to a meaningful sail. There are people who need to impose a shape upon the shapelessness of life. And so, a Quichotte upon a Sam DuChamp, a Sancho over a Marcel DuChamp, a Human Trampoline over a Sister (DuCha...
  • Meike
    Now Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019Much like I Am Sovereign (the novel I would have longlisted instead), this is a book about writing and the connection between fiction and how we narrate our own lives: Facing his past, Indian-born crime writer Sam DuChamp feels like a failure. Estranged from ...
