Listen to this episode of The Moment with guest Salman Rushdie:
This week on The Moment, Brian Koppelman talks to Salman Rushdie, author of Midnight’s Children, The Satanic Verses, and Joseph Anton: A Memoir. The two discuss Rushdie’s latest novel, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights, the themes of alienation and truth that often lurk within his stories, and why, in a world gone mad, fiction matters. Plus, Rushdie talks about his rocky start as a writer, an unforgettable night at Madison Square Garden, and how religious fascists are waging a war on pleasure.
