About the event: Salman Rushdie returns to the roots of his own love of literature, the so-called "wonder tales" of the East—the Mahabharata, Ramayana, Panchatantra, Katha-Sarit-Sagar, Arabian Nights stories, and the rest—which are still living, profound metaphors through which people view and understand their experience. They are also liberating for the writers who follow them, insisting, as they do, on the fictiveness of narrative, mingling the "real" and the "fantastic" with an equal belief, and disbelief, in both fact and fiction.
