Salman Rushdie‘s novels breathlessly intertwine historical narrative with the fantastic, a style that has been described as ‘Magical Realism’.  As such, depicting him has given me good excuse to get reacquainted with those bolder regions of the spectrum. The fire, hailing from a mid-air explosion, as well as Mount Everest and the enthusiastic consumption of pork, are all references to scenes in the novel The Satanic Verses, while the perforated sheet flying overhead appears several times throughout the novel Midnight’s Children.
