It was so nice to meet you all tonight. The book I suggested is Joseph Anton
by Salman Rushdie. I heard an interview
by Kurt Anderson with Salman Rushdie on this program Studio 360 (which you might enjoy - it mostly covers literature, film, and the arts)
On an unrelated note, this is the coffee bar/bookstore
that I mentioned reading about in Winterthur. I'd love to check it out sometime!
