內容簡介

布克獎得主、知名作家薩爾曼.魯西迪,講述了他在追殺令發布後,這三十年間的經歷。
 
  魯西迪在本書親述2022年8月12日震驚全球的刺殺事件。自他的作品《魔鬼詩篇》問世後,伊朗最高領導人以該書褻瀆先知穆罕默德為由,對其下達追殺令。三十多年來,他始終活在死亡威脅之下,而這道陰影更在2022年的夏天化為具體的刀刃──他在一場文學活動中遇刺、身受重傷。
 
  這部作品是對人生、失去、愛與藝術扣人心弦的思索,魯西迪以藝術作為對暴力的回應,展現了文字所能帶來的巨大力量。(文/博客來編譯)

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER - From Booker Prize winner Salman Rushdie, a searing, deeply personal account of enduring--and surviving--an attempt on his life thirty years after the fatwa that was ordered against him

On the morning of August 12, 2022, Salman Rushdie was standing onstage at the Chautauqua Institution, preparing to give a lecture on the importance of keeping writers safe from harm, when a man in black--black clothes, black mask--rushed down the aisle toward him, wielding a knife. His first thought: So it’s you. Here you are.

What followed was a horrific act of violence that shook the literary world and beyond. Now, for the first time, and in unforgettable detail, Rushdie relives the traumatic events of that day and its aftermath, as well as his journey toward physical recovery and the healing that was made possible by the love and support of his wife, Eliza, his family, his army of doctors and physical therapists, and his community of readers worldwide.

Knife is Rushdie at the peak of his powers, writing with urgency, with gravity, with unflinching honesty. It is also a deeply moving reminder of literature’s capacity to make sense of the unthinkable, an intimate and life-affirming meditation on life, loss, love, art--and finding the strength to stand up again.
