We're getting a new novel from author Salman Rushdie next year.
Victory City, like its predecessor, borrows from long-ago literature: Literary Hub says it's "billed as a translation of an ancient Indian myth."
Specifically, it follows a young girl who becomes a vessel for a powerful goddess, giving her the ability to create an empire.
Rushdie, best known for Midnight’s Children and The Satanic Verses, released a novella on Substack most recently; before that, his novel Quichotte was a 2019 Booker Prize finalist.
Victory City comes out February 7, 2023, in the US, UK, and Canada.
