The Truth About Polenta

Oh dear! Did Rushdie get the truth about polenta glaringly wrong in The Enchantress of Florence? Just shows how carefully you have to check your facts when you write a novel, and how you will be found out (even on the most obscure points) if you don't.

And talking of Rushdie, his piece on India's transexuals in the Times (which I should have linked too earlier) is well worth a read.
