Salman Rushdie (born Ahmed Salman Rushdie, on June 19, 1947, in Bombay, India) is a British-Indian essayist and author of fiction, most of which is set on the Indian subcontinent. He is best known for the violent criticism that his book The Satanic Verses (1988) provoked in the Muslim community. After death threats and a fatwa by Ruhollah Khomeini, calling for his assassination, he spent years underground, appearing in public only sporadically. Between 2004 and 2006 he served as president of the PEN American Center.

Personal life: Rushdie grew up in a Muslim family in Mumbai, India. When he was 14, his family moved to Pakistan. As a youth, he was educated at Cathedral and John Connon School in Mumbai and Rugby School in Warwickshire, England. He attended King's College at Cambridge in England. Following an advertising career with the firm Ayer Barker, he became a full-time writer. Rushdie is married to actress Padma Lakshmi, who is currently hosting Top Chef 2 on the Bravo (television network) in the US.
