The great Salman Rushdie is back and at the top of his game: Quichotte is a novel full of humanity, wisdom and absurd humor.
His protagonist, an aging travelling salesman who is obsessed with trashy TV, dives into an adventure while looking for love. Quichotte embarks on a picaresque quest across America, which includes tales of fathers and sons, unforgivable acts, everyday racism, the opioid crisis, cyber spies, science fiction, and last but not least, the end of the world.
Host: Bernhard Robben; German text: Sylvester Groth
