Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Rich, thoughtful, fantastical, beautifully and masterfully written. A fable of a war between the earth and Fairyland, between humans and jinni, that is also a meditation on philosophy, religion, love, fear. Wonderful. Loved it.
For an interesting conversation on the book with the author, see NPR's "Salman Rushdie: These Days, 'Everyone Is Upset All The Time.'" And I love this review over at BookPage.
