    Salman Rushdie’s new book features a “narcissistic, media-savvy villain” with colored hair https://qz.com/905928/salman-rushdies-new-book-the-golden-house-features-a-narcissistic-media-savvy-villain-with-colored-hair/ The book draws on pop culture and politics over the Obama years. According to a release from US publisher Random House:
    “Rushdie weaves together a gripping story of life over the last eight years: the rise of the Tea Party, Gamergate and identity politics; the backlash against political correctness; and the insurgence of a ruthlessly ambitious, narcissistic, media-savvy villain sporting make-up and colored hair.”
    Random House says the antagonist is not Donald Trump, but that there is another minor character who resembles the US’s golden-haired president.
