Politics and Prose and Sixth & I Present SALMAN RUSHDIE
Sir Salman Rushdie has been a towering figure in contemporary literature since his second novel, MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN, won the Booker Prize in 1981. In his thirteenth novel, THE GOLDEN HOUSE, timeless questions of good and evil bump up against 21st-century issues of identity and immigration. The narrative is told by an anonymous filmmaker whose project is to discover the truth about the mysterious Golden family of Greenwich Village. The patriarch, Nero, is a real-estate tycoon; his sons are a recluse, an artist, and a charmer hiding something even from himself. Slowly, their secrets, betrayals, and brushes with both magic and violence surface. Meanwhile, the city around them erupts in political turmoil during the campaign of a presidential candidate known only as The Joker.

Rushdie will be in conversation with Aminatta Forna, an award-winning novelist, essay writer and memoirist and current Lannan Chair of Poetics at Georgetown University.
