Quichotte is a novel by Salman Rushdie.

Salman Rushdie

Quichotte, an aging travelling salesman obsessed with TV, is on a quest for love. Unfortunately, his daily diet of reality TV, sitcoms, films and soaps has distorted his ability to separate fantasy from reality. He wishes an imaginary son, Sancho, into existence, while obsessively writing love letters to a celebrity he knows only through his screen. Together the two innocents set off across America in Quichotte's trusty Chevy Cruze to find her and convince her of his love. Quichotte's story is told by Sam DuChamp, a mediocre spy novelist in the midst of a midlife crisis, and as the stories of DuChamp and Quichotte intertwine, we are taken on a wild, picaresque journey through a familiar country on the edge of moral and spiritual collapse. (From Knopf Canada)

Quichotte is available in Sept. 2019.

Salman Rushdie is a Booker Prize-winning novelist, whose previous books include The Satanic Verses, Midnight's Children, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights and The Golden House
