One of the world's most honored authors, Salman Rushdie was awarded both the Booker and the Best of the Booker Prizes for his novel Midnight's Children. From his renowned collection East, West, "Chekhov and Zulu" employs pop culture to underscore painful political and cultural realities. Deriving their nicknames from their devotion to Star Trek, Chekhov and Zulu (Sulu) are diplomats at the India House in London. But following the assassination of Indira Gandhi-and the mass killings of Sikhs in Delhi-the boyhood friends face a crisis that even their fabled Starship Enterprise might be powerless to help them avoid.
