Quichotte by Salman Rushdie review – a literary hall of mirrors
Junk culture references abound in Rushdie’s frisky rewrite of Don QuixoteNo, it’s not a type of canape. It’s Quichotte as in Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes’s 17th-century proto-novel, here reimagined by Salman Rushdie as a 21st-century post-novel. Realism, apparently, is no longer up to the job of describing our nutzoid world. As one character suggests, “the surreal, or even the absurd, now offer the most accurate descriptors of real life”.We’re not in La Mancha any more but Trumpland. Our knight errant is a dapper old duffer named Ismail Smile who loses his job as a pharmaceutical salesman and sets off across America with a teenage son he has dreamed up named Sancho. Ismail hopes to win the heart of a young TV star named Salma, a fellow Indian-American, whose chatshow has made her “Oprah 2.0”. He has never met her but he sends love letters under the pen name “Quichotte”, believing “love will find a way” of bringing them together. Continue reading...

'Very wretched indeed': Horrible historical reviews of Scottish cities – a quiz
Ever wondered what Tripadvisor would have been like 200 years ago? Scotland the Worst is a compilation of comments made by unimpressed 17th-19th century travellers. Can you tell the town or city from the put down?The author of Scotland the Worst: A Derogatory Guide to the Worst Places to Visit in Times Gone By is retired Highland police officer Charles Maciejewski, who compiled the comments as a lighthearted contrast to today’s tourism websites. “The paucity of guide books then meant that great reliance was placed on those few that were available, which created a vision of Scotland and the Scots that, rightly or wrongly, determined the manner in which the country and people were viewed,” he writes.Below are some curmudgeonly quotes – and some rather nicer etchings of Scottish cities from the period!

Klinefelter syndrome: many men have an extra X chromosome – but it is rarely diagnosed
The genetic condition is one of the most common in the UK and may be a leading cause of infertility in men. Why does it so often go untreated?Three years ago, Paul (not his real name), now 31, went to the doctor with stomach pains. His blood test came back with low testosterone levels. “We went to see a urologist and he said bluntly that we wouldn’t have any options to have kids with my sperm – we would have to use a donor or adopt,” he says. “My wife immediately burst into tears.” The couple had been trying for a child since they married in 2015. Paul was also devastated. “It put so much stress on me, because I thought I couldn’t give my wife or my family what they so desperately wanted.”Eventually, Paul was diagnosed with Klinefelter syndrome. Affecting about one in 600 men, it is one of the most common genetic conditions in the UK, yet most people have never heard of it – including many who have it. Its symptoms – extra height, persistent tiredness, reduced bodily hair and small testes – can be difficult to identify, meaning it often goes unnoticed by patients and GPs. Untreated, however, it can lead to reduced testosterone and infertility, and even increased prevalence of testicular cancer. Continue reading...

Antoine Griezmann copies from the best with first Barcelona impact | Sid Lowe
Two goals on his competitive home debut helped lead Barcelona into the light against Betis at the Camp NouAntoine Griezmann had watched the best and wanted to do what they do. And so, when the ball came to him just to the right side of the area 50 minutes into his Camp Nou debut for Barcelona, he did. Pausing for a moment, he looked up and curled it into the corner, bending past the goalkeeper’s hand and in by the post. If the shot was familiar, the foot wasn’t. “I see Messi do it in training and I copied him,” the Frenchman said afterwards. Beaten in Bilbao on the opening night, Barcelona had been 1-0 down to Betis, darkness descending, doubts deepening, judgments served and sentences signed, but now he’d scored twice to lead them into the light. All the pressure, gone. And a little more emulation to come.When he scored the first, sliding in to volley Sergi Roberto’s delivery, Griezmann had clenched his fists, booted the ball into the air, and headed back to the centre, letting it out and urging them on. He’d promised a special celebration for his first Camp Nou goal, saying he had a surprise for them, but with the game in the balance the time wasn’t right, not yet; when he got his second, 2-1 up, on course for a victory which changed everything, it was. “If I have to say sorry, I’ll do it on the pitch,” he’d insisted at his presentation, aware that he hadn’t exactly arrived with everyone’s blessing. By 10.15pm on Sunday night he’d done that, forgiveness granted fast. Time to fulfil a promise. He’d been planning this for a while. Continue reading...
