The Enchantress of Florence by Salman Rushdie
The Enchantress of Florence

Aharon, January 1, 2010

This is probably the best historical novel I have ever read. The characters sweep across the world and while it is fantasy, it seems real as you read it. The Sultan is a character to identify with and the protagonist holds you rapt although you sense his role playing and phony pretensions from the beginning and you want to believe in the enchantress. Rushdie has been overlooked by the Nobel committee for far too long.
