The Illusionist

  • Friday, 19th Nov
  • 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm IST

In his latest book Languages of Truth Rushdie demonstrates his love of literature across the ages – from Shakespeare to Toni Morrison – and his profound understanding of the evolution and impact of literature and culture. The exuberant magical realism of that midnight awakening which clearly had deep roots in scholarship will be acknowledged forever.
