Salman Rushdie - Joseph Anton: A Memoir --- at Lisner Auditorium
at GW Lisner Auditorium
21st and H Streets, NW
Joseph Anton: A Memoir (Random House, $30)
Who is Joseph Anton? From 1989 until the Fatwa against him was rescinded, Salman Rushdie disappeared into a pseudonym he created from the names of two writers he admired: Joseph Conrad and Anton Chekhov. His new memoir is an account of the nine years he lived in hiding, during which he was constantly moved from one safe house to the next. He lived under perpetual threat, endured the end of a marriage—yet continued writing, with no loss to the signature wit and dark humor that make his fiction so distinctive.
This event is co-sponsored with The Center for Inquiry-DC.
Salman Rushdie will be in conversation with Robert Siegel, host of NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
Tickets will be on sale beginning Tuesday, July 17.
