If you are looking for some summer reads, Time magazine has a collection of well-known writers (and readers) who share what they are reading at the moment. Here is what Salman Rushdie has in his bag:
“I’m really looking forward to The Pale King. I’m kind of saving it up a little bit. If you want a really heavyweight book for summer, I find myself rereading Joyce’s Ulysses about once every 10 years, just because it’s one of the greatest things ever written. It’s a way of reminding myself to keep up to the mark.
“Rushdie’s most recent book for children, Luka and the Fire of Life, was published last year.”
