    The Enchantress of Florence is the winner of the ‘Best of the Booker’, written by Salman Rushdie.

    Summary of the Book

    This ninth novel penned by Salman Rushdie contains major themes such as eroticism, sex and humanism, and a debate as opposed to authoritarianism. It could be considered as a work of magic realism. The story is about the visit of a European to the Mughal emperor, Akbar’s court. He claims that he is born of an exiled Indian princess and an Italian from Florence and that he is a long lost relative of the king. Will the Mughal emperor believe him?

    the enchantress of florence

    a book written very eloquently and vividly..
    once you start reading it really sucks you into the very fictional world this book has created..
    there are parts of it where you feel like laughing aloud and also portions of it which really strike the point of general human behaviour.
    rushdie had tried to immerse the readers into the fictional world,keeping alive the basic human character of the life

    Renaissance Italy and The Mughal era fused into one by a master story-teller

    First the bad news: for all the Salman Rushdie buffs, who have been spoilt by the genius' writing by metaphor, will be disappointed. This master-class is not written metaphorically, but with a profound research of history (the bibliography at the end will take a lot of your time). Now the good news: Metaphoric or not, this is another great one from Rushdie, who shows that he is damn good in telling a story even outside his comfort zone of metaphor.
    The story revolves around a "hidden princess...
