This episode from 1999 features with a fascinating discussion with  actress Souad Faress and writer and lecturer Professor John Sutherland, about Salman Rushdie’s “Midnight Children.”

Both Faress and Sutherland rave about the beauty of the production values of the book.  Again, well done Two Rivers Press.
