Salman Rushdie will be in conversation with Razia Iqbal.

Salman Rushdie is one of the world’s greatest storytellers. His acclaimed book 'Midnight’s Children' has been voted the Booker Prize’s ‘Best of the Booker’ on two separate occasions and has sold over one million copies in the UK alone. He influenced an entire generation of Anglo-Indian writers and sparked a revolution in postcolonial literature with his distinctive magical realist style and depictions of the South Asian diaspora.

Now, Rushdie comes to the Intelligence Squared stage, in partnership with Vintage Live, to discuss his career, his life and his new novel 'Quichotte' with the BBC’s Razia Iqbal. Inspired by the classic' Don Quixote' by Miguel de Cervantes, the book is a wild ride through modern America — a society on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse — and examines racism, father–son relationships, the opioid crisis, cyber-spies, and the end of the world.

Join us on Thursday August 29th for an exploration of the life and work of one of the most celebrated writers of our times.
