Salman Rushdie for 2nd Bachillerato students

Dear 2nd Bachillerato students,

I guess you all remember Salman Ruhdie´s short story, "Good Advice is Rarer than Rubies", which (most of)you read as compulsory reading during the second term.Well, Salman Rushdie is travelling to different places in Spain presenting his latest novel, "The Empress of Florence".

I just thought you might like to see what Salman Rushdie looks like, hear his voice... you can do so by listening to one of his lectures about this novel (all English, no subtitles!). During the first thirty minutes he talks about his research for this novel, but in the second half of the video you can listen to some very interesting questions and answers about his life and his work.

Or you might like to watch the interview in Andreu Buenafuente´s TV programme (not a very interesting interview, I´m afraid; I was a little disppointed myself)
