Salman Rushdie: A Life in Hiding

What’s it like to wake up and discover there’s a target on your back? That’s what happened to author Salman Rushdie when he was condemned by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini after the release of his 1988 book “The Satanic Verses.”

Rushdie recently visited UC San Diego to share details from his subsequent life in hiding, the subject of his new autiobiography “Joseph Anton: A Memoir.” During his fascinating conversation with Seth Lerer, dean of Arts and Humanities at UC San Diego, Rushdie also addresses the infamous anti-Islamic video that sparked riots across the Middle East.
