RUSHDIE, SALMAN

about author

Born on June 19, 1947, in Bombay (now Mumbai), India, Salman Rushdie was British-Indian novelist. The only son of a University of Cambridge-educated businessman and school teacher in Bombay, Rushdie was educated at a Bombay private school before attending The Rugby School, a boarding school in Warwickshire, England. He went on to attend King's College at the University of Cambridge, where he studied history. After graduating, he spent time working in television and a brief period as a copywriter for an advertising agency, before pursuing a career as a writer. His first novel, Grimus, was published in 1975, followed by other notable works, including Midnight's Children (1981) and Shame (1983). Rushdie's fourth novel, The Satanic Verses (1988), led to accusations of blasphemy against Islam, and he was subsequently forced to go into hiding under the protection of the British government.
