Salman Rushdie

Biography:Salman Rushdie (born Ahmed Salman Rushdie, on June 19, 1947, in Bombay, India) is an Indian-born British essayist and author of fiction, most of which is set on the Indian subcontinent. He grew up in Mumbai (then Bombay) attended the Cathedral and John Connon School in Mumbai, Rugby School in Warwickshire, then King's College, Cambridge in England. Following an advertising career with Ayer Barker, he became a full-time writer. His narrative style, blending myth and fantasy with real life, has been described as magic realism. In 2004, Rushdie married for the fourth time, this time to prominent Indian model and actress Padma Lakshmi. He is best known for the violent criticism his book The Satanic Verses (1988) inspired in radical Muslims. After death threats and a fatwa calling for his assassination, he spent years underground, appearing in public only sporadically. He is still under supervision by the British Secret Services and has constant bodyguards. Salman Rushdie is still, technically, a wanted man. There are still several indictments pending against him in various Middle Eastern countries.
