FROM THIS EPISODE

In The Enchantress of Florence (Random House), Salman Rushdie explores Renaissance Florence and the reign of Akbar in India, in order to describe a world on the verge of discovering that all its beliefs are incorrect. It's as if reality itself is under the spell of an enchantress. We discuss the role of feminine imagination as it mediates between the potential in dreams and the finalities of history.

  • Read an excerpt from The Empress of Florence.
