I got the previous Talk about books post out on time (i.e. on the Wednesday) for the first time in several months. But already I’m slipping again. Today I’m writing about 📖The Ground beneath Her Feet (1999) and, as always when I’ve written about Rushdie’s fiction, it’s taking appreciably longer than I had allowed for. It’s worth taking time over, though, as I hope will be clear when I do eventually get the post out (probably on Saturday).
