Author Salman Rushdie is releasing a new book.
This comes nearly six months after being brutally attacked on stage while giving a speech at the Chautauqua Institution.
Rushdie’s new novel is called “Victory City” and according to the New York Times it’s about “myth-making, storytelling and the enduring power of language”.
The stabbing attack on the 75-year-old last year was linked to death threats stemming from a book he wrote back in 1988.
Rushdie has been removed from public life since the attack, but some critics are calling the release of this new book a “triumphant return to the literary world.”
The book’s release date is February 7, 2023.
