Salman Rushdie's 6 favorite surrealist books

Salman Rushdie's latest novel is Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights.

One of the author's six favorite surrealist books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Pedro Páramo by Juan Rulfo

Jorge Luis Borges thought this short, hypnotic novel to be one of the best ever written, and Gabriel García Márquez said it freed him to imagine the world of One Hundred Years of Solitude. A man is told by his dying mother to go find his father. He embarks on the journey and falls into a nightmarish world that may be populated entirely by ghosts.
Read about another book on the list.
