Radio 4 have two programmes on the morning of Monday 17 September devoted to Salman Rushdie.
At 0900 he is interviewed by Andrew Marr on Start The Week, whilst that is followed at 0945 by the first of five extracts from Joseph Anton, the book covering his period in hiding from the 1989 fatwa by the Ayatollah Khomeini.
You can order Joseph Anton here. I think Rushdie has become rather likeable in recent years, losing that slightly shrill, pontificating side to his personality. I take it this is because the 1980s leftie that sleeps inside so many of us, was knocked out of him by events. Something understandable if you have millions of religious lunatics wanting to murder you, and their liberal apologists making excuses for them.
Joseph Anton is a rather different man altogether.
