Salman Rushdie in conversation -Audio Book Radio LISTEN TO SPOKEN WORD INTERNET RADIO STATION *******www.audiobookradio**** Salman Rushdie is the author of numerous books that take readers on a provocative journey into the world of contemporary literature, politics, culture and philosophy. Rushdie's book, Step Across This Line: Collected Nonfiction, 1992-2002 discusses among other topics, the reaction of the media, various governments, and the writer himself to what he calls the "unfunny Valentine" he received on February 14, 1989, from the Ayatollah Khomeini: the fatwa (which was subsequently lifted by the government of Iran in 1998) calling for his death in response to his book The Satanic Verses. It was while living under constant threat of violence that Rushdie produced some of his most sincere and beautiful work, including The Moor's Last Sigh and Midnight's Children. video created by robert nichol rnaudioproductions *******www.allcast******
