| Filed under: Anglophilia

Hey mommas and daddys!

Gossiping in front of your kids may lead them down a path that ends at the prestigious Booker Prize.

Best of the Booker winner Salman Rushdie revealed that his mother was a "world class gossip" and that it was from her that he got a feel for talking about secrets.

He said things got to the point where she threatened to stop passing him rumors because they kept cropping up in his books.

See! Gossip 'inspired' one of the world's greatest literary minds.

Imagine what gossiping could do for one of yours!

    I'm sure that gossiping in front of children generally does more harm than good. Besides, this guy has a target painted on him. He's not the best advocate for gossiping.

    SALMAN RUSHDIE IS NOT ONE OF THE WORLDS LITERARY MINDS.. I CANNOT BELIEVE SOMEONE WOULD UTTER SUCH NONSENSE. THATS SERIOUSLY AN EFFING JOKE. HE IS SCUM, AN INTOLERANT BIGOT, FULL OF NOTHING BUT BULLSHIT, HIS EXISTENCE ON THIS EARTH IS A FREAKIN PLAGUE. PLEASE DONT PUT HIM UP AGAIN, I RESENT SEEING HIS FACE.

    Re: Missy1982 – Google his name….you will find out all you need to know.
    He wrote a book called the 'Satanic Verses' (or something along those lines), and he had to go into hiding, because the Ayatollah Khomeini sanctioned his death.

    Salman Rushdie is no pulp fiction writer. He is well known for his Satanic Verses which made Ayatollah Khomenei issued death fatwa's against him.

    Perez, If I ever felt slightly guilty and sheepish about admitting that I read you regularly (okay, I did) the fact that you are blogging about Rushdie confirms my suspicion that you are smart and cool! Good job! Keep up the good work! Inform the masses! xoxo.



  22. 22

    P.S. Chill out folks, the guy wrote many other things besides the Satanic Verses, and truly is one of the most brilliant and talented literary minds of our time. Cheers to Perez!

    Re: grl_in_ptown

    I totally agree. Have any of you guys even bothered to read any of his books or do you just make your mind up from what you read in the news? Midnight's Children is a classic.
