Emory University, Halle Institute: An Evening with Salman Rushdie
Emory University, The Halle Institute for Global Learning:
An Evening with Salman Rushdie
In the near future, a storm strikes New York City, and the strangenesses begin...
From Salman Rushdie, one of the great writers of our time, comes a spellbinding work: Inspired by the traditional "wonder tales" of the East, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is a Rushdie masterpiece, and ultimately an enduring testament to the power of storytelling that blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story.
“In his latest novel, Rushdie invents his own cultural narrative—one that blends elements of One Thousand and One Nights, Homeric epics, and sci-fi and action/adventure comic books...Rushdie provides readers with an intellectual treasure chest cleverly disguised as a comic pop-culture apocalyptic caprice.” Publishers Weekly.
