Novelist Salman Rushdie’s memoir on 2022 stabbing is to be published next year. According to book publisher Penguin Random House, Salman Rushdie, an Indian-born author who lived in exile for years after Iran asked Muslims to kill him for his writing, will release a memoir of his 2022 stabbing in New York.

On April 16, 2024, Rushdie’s latest memoir, “Knife: Meditations After an Attempted Murder,” will be released.

“This was a necessary book for me to write: a way to take charge of what happened, and to answer violence with art,” Rushdie, whose public appearances have been restricted since last year’s attack, said in a statement made available by the publisher.

The British Book Awards presented Rushdie, 76, with the ‘Freedom to Publish’ prize in May.

The British novelist lost the use of one hand and was blind in one eye due to an attack on stage in August 2022 when he was lecturing in New York State. His assailant, a Shi’ite Muslim American from New Jersey, has entered a “not guilty” plea to charges of assault and attempted second-degree murder.
Nearly six months after his stabbing assault, Rushdie published a new book, “Victory City.”

Rushdie had long received threats to his life because his fourth book, “The Satanic Verses,” was banned in several nations with sizable Muslim populations when published in 1988 due to sections some people considered obscene. Rushdie spent years hiding when Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran’s then-supreme leader, issued a fatwa, or religious edict, ordering Muslims to murder him.

The millions dollar prize on Rushdie’s head kept rising, and the fatwa was never withdrawn even as Iran’s pro-reform administration under President Mohammad Khatami distanced itself from it in the late 1990s. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Leader who succeeded Khomeini, once referred to the fatwa on Rushdie as “irrevocable.”
