SALMAN RUSHDIE’s Point of View on Books that Offend People:

“It is very, very easy not to be offended by a book. You just have to shut it.”

Salman Rushdie is the award-winning writer of such literary classics as Midnight’s Children and The Satanic Verses. His newest book, the memoir Joseph Anton, reflects back on his years under the fatwa that was placed on him by Ayatollah Khomeini.
