After a stint in advertising, he started writing fiction. The first book was a ScienceFiction novel called ''Grimus''. His second book was the BreakthroughHit and generally regarded as his MagnumOpus, ''Literature/MidnightsChildren''. After that, he published a little-known novel called ''Shame'' and ''The Jaguar Smile'', a non-fiction memoir of his time in Nicaragua. In 1988, he published ''Literature/TheSatanicVerses'', which resulted in an immediate fatwa by Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran, massive protests in other countries, and the book being [[BannedInChina banned in India]] (despite being a secular democracy with a Hindu majority). Things got crazy when Iran-backed hitmen and assassins started attacking people close to the book, killing the Japanese translator and stabbing the Norwegian publisher. Rushdie had to go underground and live under an assumed name for nearly fifteen years of his life.

Salman Rushdie is an [[CultureChopSuey Indian-British novelist of Muslim descent who has since settled in New York City]]. No scratch that, [[KudzuPlot let's start from the beginning, or should it be before the beginning...or before that]].

* MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting: Rushdie is British-Indian and he's critical of both England and India, while also appreciative of the positive characteristics of both nations. He's especially critical of religious fundamentalism (among both Hindus and Muslims) and government corruption in India.
