Author Salman Rushdie’s new book “Segerstaden” will be published in Swedish in April next year. It is about nine-year-old Pampa Kampana who, after witnessing her mother’s death, is taken possession of by the goddess Pampa. With her storytelling, she gives life to a new city, Bisnaga, and her fate also becomes intertwined with the “city of victory” – which, however, rests on fragile foundations.

The book is about the magical power of storytelling and the hubris of power.

Earlier this year, Rushdie was attacked by a man in the audience at a performance in Chautauqua in New York state. The knife attack caused the author to lose sight in one eye and mobility in one hand as the nerve fibers in the arm were severed.
