Salman Rushdie and Daniel Alarcón

Nov 3, 2017

Introduced by Emma Brockes and Laura Perciasepe

Set against the backdrop of American culture and politics, Salman Rushdie’s new novel, The Golden House, is a modern epic of love and terrorism, loss and reinvention. Full of unforgettable characters, Daniel Alarcón’s The King is Always Above the People is a new collection of stories about immigration, broken dreams, Los Angeles gang members and Latin American families. “He’s a storyteller whose wisdom outpaces his youth and whose talent is already ablaze,” wrote ZZ Packer.
