51X+98yyn+LLuka and the Fire of Life: a Novel
by Salman Rushdie (Random House, 2010)

Remember what happened when David Lynch and William Blake went out for tea?

Well, now imagine that Salman Rushdie emceed a brunch-time conversation between Neil Gaiman, Norton Juster, Lewis Carroll, and Paulo Coelho.

The result would be Rushdie’s Luka and the Fire of Life: delight-filled and whimsical, linguistically playful and philosophically inquisitive.

This books brings the Magic into Being.
