Keira – Haroun and Luka by Salman Rushdie

image1Amidst the anticipated texts that we had to read for an English Literature university degree sat this title by this contentious writer. A breath of fresh air, it was a wonderful Alice in Wonderland inspired story that reminded us that children’s stories are just as, if not more important.

With this wonderful cover by good friend and talented illustrator Lesley Barnes, this book is made even more special. A fantastic animator and beautiful illustrator herself, Lesley and Vintage have really made this a beautiful product to take home. Rushdie at his finest.
