Sir Salman Rushdie brilliantly combines magical realism and the long histories of the Middle East and the West into compelling novels. In the 1980s, he established himself with critically acclaimed works like Midnight’s Children and The Satanic Verses. These works were also points of major controversy, making Rushdie one of the most imperiled authors of all time. He has faced numerous assassination attempts by Islamic extremists who view his work (primarily The Satanic Verses) as sacrilege. Yet Rushdie perseveres, as does his literature. In Joseph Anton: A Memoir, he provides a deeply personal, honest, and revealing account of his time in hiding after many attempts on his life. “Joseph Anton” was his pseudonym in hiding. The memoir is written in the third-person, creating a sense of distance to match the isolation Rushdie no doubt felt in spite of his literary success. It is a crucial volume for any Rushdie collector.

This first American edition, first printing is signed by Rushdie on the title page. It is in very good condition. In the original casing, very good with only creases to spine and bumping to spine ends. Text block very good, only very slightly cocked. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A very good signed first American edition by Salman Rushdie.
