The Satanic Verses
Viking 1988 - Salman Rushdie (1988) ‘The Satanic Verses’, UK first edition, first printing, published by Viking. Signed by Rushdie on the title page where he also added a dedication ‘To Tolerance’. A defying remark to the fatwa which resulted in years-long hiding; a bitter experience which Rushdie later wrote down in his autobiography ‘Joseph Anton’. Condition: very fine. The book is tight, no lean and unread, corners sharp. An unfaded dust jacket (exceptionally scarce to find as most specimen display fading on the spine) which is not price clipped. The best copy we have ever seen. Rushdie won the Booker Prize in 1981 for ‘Midnight’s Children’. ‘Satanic Verses’ was shortlisted for the prize. A landmark novel that led to the infamous fatwa forcing Rushdie into years-long hiding. Salman is a hot candidate for the Nobel. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
