Epic story includes a slimy Trumpian con artist character The Joker, autism, transgender issues, as a billionaire moves his family from India to a mansion in NYC. Satire for our age of anti - truth.

Salman Rushdie's new book is a breath of fresh air after Two Years, Eight Months, and Twenty-Eight Nights. It is full to the brim with literary and cinematic references, not to mention cultural markers and political commentary from the last 8 years and today. Rene is a pretty unreliable narrator and often unlikable, which kept me on my toes. I'm still not sure what I think of the book, but it is definitely worth a read. In addition to providing a suspenseful, enticing drama, Rushdie offers his response to the events of the 2016 election. It was definitely enjoyable to return to the land of the real after his last few fantastical novels.
