I had the privilege of seeing Sir Salmon Rushdie speak in September. He was so delightful and thoughtful that I knew I’d enjoy his writing, so I immediately purchased the book that had already been recommended to me and put it next in my reading queue.
THIS BOOK WAS SO DELIGHTFUL! I love a narrator with no boundaries, and I loved how frequently he doubted his own memory while also weaving a complex and beautiful and absurd history of India.
I’ve sought out a few more books that fall under the category of magical realism since many of the things I enjoyed about this book match what I enjoyed in Love in the Time of Cholera. It’s possible that I’ve not just discovered a few authors to pursue, but a whole genre to dive into!
