Absolutely Transfixed by this Audiobook – Joseph Anton by Salman Rushdie

How I wished Salman Rushdie narrated the whole book and not just the prologue. I always desire to hear the story in the writer’s own voice.

I am fascinated by his biography as I’m a great admirer of his genious. If I ever had the chance to meet him I’d be absolutely dumb struck because it would be a dumb person next to a genius who only wishes she had a fraction of his intellect and writing ability.

His life as a 13 year old migrant, his years in Cambridge and the early attempts at becoming a writer are all covered as well as what he went through during the fatwa. In my opinion he had natural genius as a writer but he describes the struggles he went through in the early years. And writing that was rejected. I’m always grateful when the tremendously successful also reveal their struggles.
