In his new novel, Salman Rushdie, winner of the Booker of Bookers, transports readers to the 16th century Mughal Court, where a visitor from the Florentine world of Machiavelli wins the attention of the Emperor. This vintage Rushdie tale of stories within stories, where nothing is as it first seems (or is it?), sets up symmetries between East and West – the hedonistic Mughal capital and the equally sensual Florentine city. Salman Rushdie is the author of nine novels, including Midnight’s Children and The Moor’s Last Sigh. Erica Wagner is the Literary Editor of The Times and author of the novel Seizure."
