Salman Rushdie — Luka and the Fire of Life

Rushdie’s follow up to Haroun and the Sea of Stories was written for his 12-year-old son Milan (Haroun was written for his other son, so it’s only fair). It’s kind of like how Johnny Depp keeps doing Pirates of the Caribbean movies for his kids. No, it’s only like making the first movie — Luka and the Fire of Life is actually pretty good.
