Rushdie on Desert Island Discs

I have been slowly listening my way through the back episodes of Desert Island Discs, and was delighted to come across one with Salman Rushdie as the castaway. There was a point, however, when Rushdie began to talk about his "next" novel, The Satanic Verses, and I realized with a jolt that this interview was recorded before the Rushdie Affair began. I don't think the very notion of a pre-Affair Rushdie even crossed my mind before.
