Thirty years ago, Salman Rushdie made a surprise appearance at a Canadian PEN fundraiser, while still in hiding because of the fatwa issued against him for his 1988 novel, The Satanic Verses. Getting Rushdie to Toronto was an enormous undertaking and Writers & Company was one of few Canadian media outlets granted access to Rushdie before the event. As Rushdie continues his recovery from injuries sustained in an attack earlier this year, Writers & Company revisits conversations with Rushdie in 1992 and 2015 in a special tribute episode.
