Rushdie is our Scheherazade – Ursula K LeGuin

Salman Rushdie is the author of twelve novels including Midnight’s Children (for which he won the Booker Prize and the Best of the Booker), Shame, The Satanic Verses, and Haroun and the Sea of Stories, along with one collection of short stories: East, West. He has also published four works of nonfiction and co-edited two anthologies, Mirrorwork and Best American Short Stories 2008. His forthcoming novel, The Golden House, is a modern epic of love and terrorism, loss and reinvention—a powerful, timely story told with the daring and panache that has kept Salman Rushdie a literary and cultural force for decades.
