BENGALURU: Salman Rushdie’s latest novel, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is a wonderful tale about the way we live now and a rich and multifaceted work that blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story. It brings alive a world - our world - that has been plunged into an age of unreason. Inspired by 2,000 years of storytelling, yet rooted in the concerns of our present moment, it is a breathtaking achievement and an enduring testament to the power of the imagination.
Salman Rushdie is the critically acclaimed and award-winning author of eleven previous novels including Midnight’s Children (awarded the Booker Prize in 1981, and the Best of the Booker Prize in 2008), Shame, and The Satanic Verses. His latest work was his 2012 memoir, Joseph Anton, a harrowing chronicle of his life as a controversial author and a hunted man who had to live in hiding under several identities to escape the numerous death threats against him. His books have been translated into over forty languages.
Penguin Books India will publish the new book under their Hamish Hamilton imprint in September 2015.
