London, Aug 3 (ANI): Indian/British novelist Sir Salman Rushdie has revealed that he is considering writing a children’’s book.
Rushdie, 61, who had been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for his typically hard-going novel The Enchantress of Florence, said that he wants to pen a children’’s book for his second son.
“My next project is more than likely going to be a children’’s book,” the Telegraph quoted him as telling Mandrake at the Cartier International Polo last weekend.
“I wrote one a good number of years ago for my eldest son, Zafar, so it only seems fair to resurrect the tradition for my 11- year-old son, Milan,” he added.
Meanwhile, the renowned author was seen accompanied at the Guards Polo Club, in Windsor, by the 25-year-old journalist Aita Ighodaro, the second time that they had watched the sport together in a week. (ANI)
