Two Years Eight Months and Twenty Eight Nights: Salman Rushdie

The book titled Two Years Eight Months and Twenty Eight Nights authored by the British Indian novelist Salman Rushdie was released on 8 September 2015.

The book can be easily called as an update to Rushdie’s ancient eastern classic, A Thousand and One Nights and is a work of fiction, blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story.

The book opens in the 12th century Spain. The story revolves around the great Spanish-Muslim philosopher Ibn Rushd, languishing in exile for his enlightened views, and an evil genie in disguise Dunia. The story jumps to New York City where Ibn Rushd and Dunia’s distant descendants discover that they have special powers.

The climax of the book is action-packed with an epic war being fought by powerful genies over the future of humanity.
