By the Book: Bibliography - Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie might be best known for his fifth book, The Satanic Verses - which resulted in a fatwa against him in 1989 - but a dive into his body work shows that there is much more to him than notoriety. In his 40-year career as a writer, Rushdie has published nearly 20 books, many of which won widespread acclaim. In this month’s Bibliography, we look at how Rushdie’s unique approach to stories on migration and mingling cultures shaped an entire generation of literature. We wrap things up with a discussion on Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, which not only won three Booker prizes, but was also awarded the Best of Booker Award in 2008.
