Salman Rushdie has a “new” book (see below), although it’s actually a year old. And review have been mixed (see this versus this, for example). I haven’t read it, so readers who have should weigh in below. This interview with France 24’s Marc Perelman is nominally about the book, but really deals with a number of diverse topics, including religion (according to Rushdie, it’s “a thing that the human race needs to grow out of”), the need to call Islamic terrorism “Islamic,” burkinis and hijabs, and, of course, his book. It’s worth a listen, though it’s not the most stimulating interview I’ve heard.
