A Bit More About Atwood

Three female characters narrate the follow up of Atwood.  She won the prize for The Blind Assassin Before. Florence describes it to be “a savage novel that speaks with conviction.”

A Bit More About Rushdie

Rushdie won the prize for Midnight’s Children before. He made the shortlist in 1983,1988 and 1995. Don Quixote’s Miguel de Cervantes inspires Quichotte. It speaks about a salesman driving across America. He tries to prove himself worthy of a TV star’s hand.
