Salman Rushdie: Audible Sessions: FREE Exclusive Interview

Joining us in the Audible Studios to talk about his 13th novel, The Golden House, is critically acclaimed British-Indian novelist and writer Sir Salman Rushdie.

Born in Bombay, British India, Salman Rushdie has become literary nobility, lauded for his ability to combine magical realism with historical fiction, focusing on the connections between Eastern and Western civilisations.

Rushdie has had his titles translated into over 40 languages, and his best-known books include his second novel, Midnight's Children - which won the Booker Prize in 1981 - and his fifth book, The Satanic Verses, which prompted a fatwa against him in 1989. Rushdie has since received countless awards and honours for his work and remains one of the most popular and controversial writers of the 20th century.

Salman Rushdie talks to us about his venture back into realism, what underlying message he is trying to convey in his latest book and the humour people missed in The Satanic Verses.

This interview also includes an exclusive reading by Salman of the opening of The Golden House.
