About The Author

Salman RushdiePODCAST OF EVENT AVAILABLE HERE

Sir Salman Rushdie is the author of many novels including Grimus, Midnight's Children, Shame, The Satanic Verses, The Moor's Last Sigh, The Ground Beneath Her Feet, Fury and Shalimar the Clown. He has also published works of non-fiction including The Jaguar Smile, Imaginary Homelands, The Wizard of Oz and, as co-editor, The Vintage Book of Short Stories.

He has received many awards for his writing, including the European Union's Aristeion Prize for Literature. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres. In 1993 Midnight's Children was judged to be the 'Booker of Bookers', the best novel to have won the Booker Prize in its first 25 years. In June 2007 he received a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours.


Joseph AntonOn 14 February, 1989, Salman was 'sentenced to death' by the Ayatollah Khomeini, for writing The Satanic Verses. He was forced underground, moving from house to house under armed protection. His memoir of the fatwa, Joseph Anton (his alias while in hiding), tells this remarkable story for the first time. How does a writer and his family live with the threat of murder for over nine years? How does he fall in and out of love? How does despair shape his actions? And how does he learn to fight back?


Listen to our podcast here, in which Salman Rushie discusses life under the fatwa with David Aaronovitch.


Below is a list of Salman's books currently in print. You may find other editions in our New and Used Marketplace. You can find a listing of his audiobooks here.
