Dutch translation of The Satanic Verses (1988); the controversial novel by British-American essayist and writer Salman Rushdie (1947-). FIRST EDITION in Dutch.
The Satanic Verses is inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov's classic Russian novel The Master and Margarita (1928/1940) and mixes the Quran with Bollywood. It became a controversy on a global scale when Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa in June 1989 calling for the author's murder. This led to an attack on Rushdie in 2022 when he was giving a lecture in New York.
