"[Quichotte is a] delightful confection... Humane and humorous.
Rushdie is in top form, serving up a fine piece of literary
satire." * Kirkus Reviews (starred review) *
"Rushdie's rambunctious latest... [is an] uproarious comedy... a brilliant rendition of the cheesy, sleazy, scary pandemonium of life in modern times." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *
