Salman Rushdie reads from Joseph Anton

Oct 11, 2012

In this clip, Rushdie reads a part about his father, Anis Ahmed. "Anis was a godless man," he began, "still a shocking statement to make in The United States, though an unexceptional one in Europe, and an incomprehensible idea in much of the rest of the world where the thought of not believing is hard even to formulate."
