@SalmanRushdie Not available on UK Amazon yet, is there hope for us? Seems a little quixotic!

It will be published on the same day in the UK with a different cover... yet to be revealed! https://t.co/1NrkvyvWby

This is a real shocker… 90% of British pensions invest in companies that produce arms, tobacco or fossil fuels. If you're not ok with that, watch this 1 min film feat. a naked Martin Freeman. You’re allowed to CHOOSE where your money is invested. @MMMoneyMatter and please RT? https://t.co/UEyncMddOk

This is a fake tweet, which seems to be circulating. I have never said anything of this sort. @Twitter @jack please note and take this down. https://t.co/1lmg6ISg3f

How can we live together in our diverse, digitized and divided society without curbing free speech? Congratulations to @suzannenossel on #daretospeak! Published today. https://t.co/SfeWZ1z2Ro

Each course in NYU's new Big Ideas series—open to all students online this fall—will feature a team of top faculty experts (such as @SalmanRushdie, who gives a taste of his lecture on gender and identity here) weighing in on a common theme.

"I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous. It’s actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it." - Trump to WSJ https://t.co/t5IRF4uT45

Retweet if you’d heard of Juneteenth. https://t.co/qkUApK0YvX

“I lived along a gold, raw edge of Maybe or Maybe Not... Could I have ever saved her?” -“Volume,” from “Seeing the Body,” the powerful new book by @racheleliza_g https://t.co/R7SlYYHgen

Published today. #SeeingTheBody @racheleliza_g - beautiful book. https://t.co/jYKWbhz2W4

Quoted @IndiaStoughton

My latest is for @TheEconomist @EconCulture on the enduring wisdom of “Haroun and the Sea of Stories” by @SalmanRushdie. It was my favourite book growing up and contains fascinating reflections on freedom of speech, censorship and the power of stories. https://t.co/R0k0BYjDRw

Thank you. I was very happy to see this. https://t.co/xXLJomZ1m2

Quoted @WashPostPR

Novelist @SalmanRushdie writes in @PostOpinions : I’ve seen dictators rise and fall. Beware, America. https://t.co/WMKi93Wgs2

Here’s something I just wrote. https://t.co/n3ypjiwhgv

Quoted @parul_sehgal

It's not that deep, man. Didn't like the book + stand by my review (https://t.co/uZZV8fwvjE). But thanks for excellent new Twitter bio. https://t.co/ZkPZw4NrIy

You can dish it out but you can't take it, huh. https://t.co/T7cMJ58nBc

Quoted @adijnas

@SalmanRushdie I've read all your books over the decades and I think Quichotte is one the best, but then, unlike this critic, I also loved Shalimar the Clown 🤷

Coleridge wrote about the “motiveless malignity” of Iago towards Othello. There are critics I think of as “Iagos” of this type. @parul_sehgal is high on that list. https://t.co/a3hFboIPCT

If you want better reviews, there are plenty of good ones. But a better idea is to throw away the reviews and just see what you think of the book. Thanks for reading. https://t.co/QkqeSFX2bD

Quoted @SanSip

@SalmanRushdie A reference to biographer Enid Starkie’s “precise and disheartening indictment.”

Thanks. I’ve seen at least three scholarly papers discussing the eyes, but I enjoyed Julian’s thoughts on the subject, that’s all. https://t.co/3eyKAqmNkO

Quoted @PacoGoldman

@colsonwhitehead Oh good. I was worried that kind of thing was early onset dementia.

According to Julian Barnes in Flaubert’s Parrot, Madame Bovary’s eyes change color a number of times in the book. https://t.co/AAgEUdVm8W

@SalmanRushdie⁩ alas you were prevented from speaking all those years ago; so I could not attend; but I kept the memory. https://t.co/uLCOrNMmfF

I’ve spoken in Cambridge many times since then! Hope you managed to get to one of those events. https://t.co/6pkC6J6DPF

@SalmanRushdie Hi Salman Rushdie! I’m ten years old, and me and my mum are reading Haroun and The Sea Of Stories during our lockdown in New Zealand. I just love the book and your style of writing. I wrote an opposite paragraph for the first chapter, and I just posted it for a school task. https://t.co/IHJ8RD7Nbj

Dear Gabe, I’m so glad you’re enjoying my Haroun and congrats on your excellent ”opposite paragraph”! https://t.co/bjbj3ffcfy

'In a sad city, the saddest of cities, a city so ruinously sad that it had forgotten its name, lived a professional storyteller named Rashid and his son Haroun,' thus begins @SalmanRushdie’s delightful book! #ReadFromHome #HaroundAndTheSeaOfStories https://t.co/dZwTcT83hy

That’s actually isn’t how it begins, but a sentence patched together from different parts of the first page. The book’s publisher should know better than to misquote the book. https://t.co/jfif3asl5p

Quoted @ursulamurphy123

@SalmanRushdie I’ve seen the wonderful interview you did many years ago with Edward Said and am wondering if you or any of your followers might know the name of a series about the history of colonialism and featuring Said, Eqbal Ahmad, Tariq Ali?? Possibly made in late 198Os ??

Sorry, I don't remember. Are you thinking of The Idea of Empire, documentary about Edward, made in 1993? Can't recall now if Eqbal was part of that. Directed by Tim May and Frank Hanly. https://t.co/u3xMcsC3NI
