Scope and Content Note

Printed material by Rushdie includes his essays, minor fiction, opinion editorials, and reviews. His essays, written from 1982 until 2000, note his political views, engagement with popular and literary culture, and provide autobiographical commentary. Minor fiction contains a few uncollected short stories published in periodicals, but primarily consists of excerpts from Midnight's Children, Shame, The Satanic Verses, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, and The Ground Beneath Her Feet. The section of other materials includes blurbs, excerpts, interviews, poems, and letters to the editor also written by Rushdie. His opinion editorials, from 1981 until 2005, illustrate his political engagement and activism, while his reviews from 1981 to 1995 show his investment in contemporary letters.
