Listen to/Watch entire show:
Part I: The focus is on Salman Rushdie's writing: its themes, structures, techniques and styles. The subjects include mothers, love, cartoons, James Joyce and, only occasionally, the fatwa.
Part II: Rushdie on the art of layering: the organization of the swarms of characters, stories and styles that crawl, teem and fly through The Moor's Last Sigh.
