Salman Rushdie

As part of our special Thanksgiving programming, we revisit our interview with Salman Rushdie following the release of his new memoir “Joseph Anton.” The Booker Prize-winning author recounts the nine years he lived under the Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwah, which was imposed in response to Rushdie’s 1988 novel “The Satanic Verses.”
