Host Jim Schumock presents a special extended interview with Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie, whose latest book is The Enchantress of Florence: A Novel.  In the book, a tall, yellow-haired, young European traveler calling himself “Mogor dell’Amore,” the Mughal of Love, arrives at the court of the Emperor Akbar, lord of the great Mughal empire, with a tale to tell that begins to obsess the imperial capital, a tale about a mysterious woman, a great beauty believed to possess powers of enchantment and sorcery, and her impossible journey to the far-off city of Florence.

The Enchantress of Florence
is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man’s world. It is the story of two cities, unknown to each other, at the height of their powers–the hedonistic Mughal capital, in which the brilliant Akbar the Great wrestles daily with questions of belief, desire, and the treachery of his sons, and the equally sensual city of Florence during the High Renaissance, where Niccolò Machiavelli takes a starring role as he learns, the hard way, about the true brutality of power.

Patrick O’Connor, author of “The Framing of Mumia”, talked about his book and shared information that has not been presented before the publication of his book. He described part of the injustice of the trial, the lies about a so-called confession—which did not exist, and  the bias of Judge Sabo. After his in depth study of Mumia’s case, O’Connor seemed convinced that Mumia will never be executed and that there is still a possibility of a new trial.
