In honor of Salman Rushdie’s birthday, I am posting two excerpts from his novel The Satanic Verses. These quotes hope to suggest how deeply Rushdie delves into  questions of identity and language in his novel. They also hope to encourage those who haven’t read his book, to include it in their reading lists.

It is surprisingly silly and fun.
