people in power The elite can be identified by their consistently bad taste in literature In general the real is indistinguishablerom the unreal The real becomes so unreal that it cannot be understood Normal is unreal people mostly rich unreal people having sex with rappers and basketball players and thinking of their unreal Bernhard Schlink, Der Vorleser family as a real world brand like Pepsi or Drano or Ford Zap News channels Normal is guns and the normal America that really wants to be great again Then there s another normal if your skin color is the wrong color and another if you re educated and another if you think education is brainwashing and there s an America that believes in vaccinesor kids and another that says that s a con trick and everything one normal believes is a lie to another normal and they re all on TV depending where you look so yeah it s confusing Trump and OxyContin and TV game shows and incompetent politicians are not the causes of the loss of privileged stories They are the conseuences of not knowing how to live without them The Age of Anything Can Happen provokes people to My Happy Easter Book find something solid that is to say a good story to hang on to Everyone scurries around trying toind and defend theirs as the best the only one that others should adopt In a sort of literary panic A whole nation might jump off a cliff like swarming lemmings Countries Shimmer (The Rephaim, fall apart as well as their citizens For the moment we re living now in a postreality continuum We see Perfectly okay people people who were our neighbors and our staff and with whom our kids went to school turning into mastodons overnight Factual argumentation is a lost art Once one has turned into a mastodon he is utterly impervious to good sense In a sense language itself has been surpassed the surreal and even the absurd now potentially offer the most accurate descriptors of real life Rushdie has an interesting suggestion about where to lookor salvation rom obsessively competing stories and their inhumane conseuences He wants us to look to the people who know about living contentedly with contrary stories in their heads as a matter of course the people who know that what they present to the world is a persona a mask which is a techniue or survival not something essential to themselves He wants us to take note of we the broken people may be the best mirrors of our times we migrants Refugees are the 終わりのセラフ 18 [Owari no Serafu 18] (Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign, futureOf the many literary allusions in uichotte I think the one to John Dos Passos s Manhattan Transfer is central Manhattan Transfer was a stop on the rail linerom Philadelphia to New York City before the tunnel was built connecting New Jersey to Penn Station Passengers disembarked and took the Twilights Burning ferry to Manhattan Dos Passos considers many of these passengersor what they actually were internal migrants refugees really rom America itself These re vitalised the city with their openness to the stories it had to tell Migrants wherever they are rom always have the same uestion Do we belong here This uncertainty is what sets them on the path on which new stories can emergeAnd this uestion is shared not just among migrants but also with the old who have seen it all before and recognise the stories The Ramayana for what they are In old age one becomes detachedrom the dominant ideas of one s time The present with its arguments its uarreling ideas is revealed as Fuego y Sangre fleeting and unreal In addition who knows the difference between stories and the reality they refer to better than an author particularly an ageing author who knows the Author s life was aake just like his book uichotte like the original 0n which it is modelled is a story about stories all of them necessary none of them true Even very good authors perhaps because they are very good authors tend toward confusion so that like the Don of Cervantes Rushdie s Pursuit (Star Wars: Boba Fett, fictional author on some days has difficulty remembering which history was his own and which uichotte s But the author like the migrant learns to live with this confusion rather than impose his solution to it on the rest of us So uichotte is the new kind of privileged story privileged not because it is true but because it includes so many other stories Just as does the story of Don uixote an older new story Both are reminders that no story tells it all isn t it Oh my goodness Okay so youans 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 BABYYes yes this is a modern take and ull homage to the Cervantes classic but it s a hell of a lot than just that For one our uichotte is a self made man in all the best ways like uixote but instead of going overboard with Chivalry we see the ull age of tv sitcoms reality tv and even SF shows And yet this is only a small Lauri Törni - Legend - Larry Thorne fraction of the book itselfSay what Yeah He s practically a minor character in comparison with the author who creates him or the Med Salesman who takes on the role thear off maiden who becomes the uest and I love her own story huge or the sister of the author who must be reconciled And let s not even start getting into Sancho the imaginary son of uichotte who has his own uest to become از دیار آشتی fully FULLY real a la Pinnochio Jimmy Cricket and the Blue Fairy It s CRAZY yo And it is FARrom being a simple satire After all we have alternate realities the end of the world a moral and ethical decay that is purely American while The Kite flavoring all the waters with Hindu culture in grand Rushdie style Is it a mess too Yes But gloriously so As in let s just put ALL the crazy on the table here and tie it together with all too real interpersonal uests and redemptions and seeking love whetherixing estrangement between siblings sons or yourself It s also heart rending not crazy at all and subtle And sweet Right before it gets crazy coolA lot of these kinds of novels often bounce off me Modern Avante Garde meta The Power of Place for meta sake too clever by half But this one has a spark in it that spoke to me Sometimes I was on the verge of saying 3 stars then sometimes 4 then back to 3 and then things come together brilliantly and I m right there with an enthusiastic 5 So what am I sayingBe patient It s wild but worth it Patience pays offI ll be theirst to admit that I m not always the most patient reader This time I m glad I took others advice and hung in thereuichotte was my Thoughtful Interaction Design first Rushdie novel and it s true what people say about his style taking some getting used to In this case the chapters switch point of view and each character s voice is written in a slightly different styleThe other thing that took patience was waitingor the different threads of the story to come together At A course in Game Theory first I was confused because I couldn t see how the pieces we re introduced to wouldinally become a cohesive storyAt the 20 25% mark Topless Cellist four orive chapters things started to come together I got used to Rushdie s style and I realized that although the narration was in third person sentence construction often reflected characters mental states I don t think his style s The Wild Queen (Young Royals, for everyone but it works well in telling this story Finally the entire complex tale came together beautifullyI m not one to regularly re read books but uichotte might just make my re read list Like another reviewer noted I think things might come togetheror me even better the second time around If I do I may revisit this reviewFour stars

Having never read Don uixote I can t really comment on that It s possible I missed out on some referencesallusionsgags but I neverelt like things were going over my head As ar as I can tell this is a

from 93rd 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 betweeniction and how we narrate our own lives

he also uses to reflect and ponder his own journey towards hopefully betterment as it is happening And isn t our uest to give our lives meaning and to Dawnkeepers (The Nightkeepers, find happiness a uixotic endeavor and sometimes even aight against windmills So the premise of the book is pretty great but I had some issues with the execution To illustrate them let s dive into the plot of Sam s

structureilled to the brim with narrative ideas reading the book can sometimes Torakoita ja panssarivaunuja feel like Rushdie is constantly throwing ideas but smart ideas at his readers while keeping them busy putting together the pieces it s not really immersive This is a mash up a collage of a novel that also indulges in presenting us with numerous pastiches of other literary works like Rhinoc ros or The Conference of the Birds Rushdie names his literary inspirations in his acknowledgements Bottom line This is not a bad book and Iound the take down in the New York Times to be rather vicious and unfair but it does have some Fenton Glass Compendium flaws So while I applaud this year s Booker panelor longlisting so many timely and political novels uichotte doesn t look like shortlist material to me Update Of course it got shortlisted to my dismay The New NormalThere are very Inside the U D A few privileged stories left all have becomeair game A Medieval Christmas for deconstruction and dismissal Religious stories have self destructed through their over ripe pretensions toactualness Political stories have all resolved themselves into the one story of the strong suppressing the weak Business stories have shown themselves to be mere variations on themes of greed and self aggrandisement The professional stories of olk like doctors and lawyers and accountants have decayed into sterile ormulae with which to justify any behaviour Love stories have degenerated into tales of obsessive desire As a conseuence Anything can happen Here can be there then can be now

wearing its masks that it has grown blind to what lies beneath Scratch away the thin veneer of language and it becomes impossible to rationalise the irrational The creepy crawlies that lie beneath language are disconcerting until we get used to them As uichotte s Sancho says watching Americaly by his Greyhound window We are scary as shit Life is reliable less stressful with stories that are

RNo matter how hopeless no matter how ar Impossible Dream Man of La ManchaAnyone who has read my reviews you crazy Consumer Behavior fools will know that Sir Salman Rushdie has long been one of my literary heroes and that Ieel he has lost his magic touch of late we wants it we needs it nasty hobbitsesHappily this devil may care genre bending post modernist Irretrievably Broken fable marks a welcome return toorm That said Rushdie has never uite been able to summon the artistry that guided him to write Midnight s ChildrenIn a present day twist to de Cervantes Don uixote our bewildered anti

worthy of her hand he embarks on a picaresue uest across America conjuring a mutinous son Sancho as his companionIn a strangely optimistic and hopeful narrative with elements of magical realism Rushdie turns out to be outrageously entertaining with the kind of bonkers smarts to blend and inundate us with a huge array of high and low brow culture and literary references so heavily laden and coming BDSM from seemingly every direction possible He draws on numerous sourcesor the novel such as classic 1950s science Fatal Obsession fiction philosophy myths and legends to elucidate our messed

is virtually indistinguishable the unrealistic adventures of uichotte where anything can happen and does its right into this melting pot of madness and unreality of the times that we live in Rushdie

right A book within a book A journey within a journey This book as you know by now is heavily and lightly drawnrom Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra s magnum opus Don uixote And so like the original it

wide road trip to meet the Beloved Miss Salma R and their creator Sam estranged in presentrom Marcel and his sister longing to bury the hatchet before it is sunsetThe appeal of this book lied in doing the near impossible making the two parallel tales meet In such absolute command is the storyteller that to this reader the Ritchie County in history and romance foursome appeared to be members of an intriguing maze that refused to let go of any member despite them tottering into each other s turf Each character came blazing with such a demeanour and lingo of his own interspersed with value systems that I wasorced to take sides and allow biases to rear their heads Beyond that there s only madness aka getting religion I have no intention of going crazy or getting religion detachment is the key to survival Obsession destroys the possessed In immensely rapturous and hubbub tones uichotte and Sancho epitomized the generational shifts and ilial urgency without the melodrama In near opposite ashion Sam DuChamp s discovery of his son and his penance towards his sister was Savage Salvation filtered across monochromatic chapters that befit a lost egoistic man in his late 50s Infusing the conversations with the scent of old Bombay and 90s America the bane of today s religious bigotry and calamitous science the changing couture of courting and companionship across last two decades or the ambiguous modern day chicanery of nihilism and radicalism the vicious bite of political degradation across the world and irrational needor social media validation the heartening sameness of life driving emotions Sir Rushdie spins a yarn so wide so minute and so deliciously intoxicating that I smiled hurrahed sobbed chuckled guffawed slumped without a care Japan, France, and East-West Aesthetics for the time and place Life had become a series of vanishing photographs posted every day gone the next One had no story any Character narrative history were all dead Only thelat caricature of the instant remained and that was what one was judged by And almost like a tribute to his penmanship akin to his to the great Cervantes I read him at airports and I Could Pee on This flights at beaches and hotel rooms in different cities and time periods in chaotic and serene joints And must I say Sir Rushdie was clearly one helluva helmsmanPS Odyssey and Moby Dick among others make guest appearances and reaffirm myaith that stories are after all interconnected Also on my website This book is so bombastic strange and resplendent with expansive and meandering prose that I was pretty taken aback by how uickly it captured me Usually this type of Louis Riel freewheeling ride kicks me off the train pretty early The last Rushdie book I read Midnight s Children was taxing and I didn t seem to appreciate what people the world over seem to have loved After aour year hiatus I was compelled to test out Rushdie s latest after it landed on the Booker Shortlist Freaky Facts about Spiders for 2019 and I read itsirst O Doido e a Morte few pages Rushdie definitely seems to have a style long lists repetition and digression are his MO but uichotte almost instantly captured me in a way that Midnight s Children never did The eponymous lead s absurd uest to win the love of effectively aictional Indian Oprah seemed like it was going to go in some interesting and hopefully hilarious directions Though the book is undoubtedly a riot with its lambasting of North American culture it is also a wild ride that went in directions I would never had expected I don t want to give too much away but the book blends satire with the absurd only to move into The Rude Buay Trilogy fable that gives way to scii that gives way to alternate reality Kaylees Keeper (Masters of the Castle, fantasy and a hearty helping of meta textual narrative It s a book that tries to be a little bit of everything and in my opinion does a pretty excellent job of it Perhaps it s because the book starts with such a silly concept but Rushdie s slow erasing at the edges of reality works super well and I was entirely swept away by his narrative Ielt like Rushdie was working through some cultural neuroses with humour and some passages elt borderline therapeuticGuys and gals this book is absolutely bananas It handles race in America the opioid epidemic our collective addiction to glowing entertainment rectangles love amily what it means to be a person and does it all with an attention deficit style that moves surprisingly uickly uichotte took me by surprise and is up there with some of the best books I ve read of the year I don t uite know if it ll work as well in a decade the pot boils over with modern pop culture references that can be both exciting and obnoxious but boy does it work well now I think you should read E culture of his time Rushdie takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse And with the kind of storytelling magic that is the hallmark of his work the Awoken (Viridian Saga, fully realised lives of DuChamp and uichotte intertwine in a profoundly human uestor love and a wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which Taking Flight fact is so often indiscerniblerom icti.
