Salman Rushdie in signature clash with fellow author
There is nothing truer in the literary world than the fact that it is fated to carry the cross of its patrons’ idiosyncrasies. The V.S. Naipaul-Paul Theroux clash is the weightiest of them all. A potential rival is the latest row between Salman Rushdie and Malcolm Gluck. Only, the issue has shifted from the penning of ideas to signatures. The Best of Booker winner is currently embroiled in a signature war with famous wine writer Malcolm Gluck — The Guardian’s books section being the arena where it is being fought out. The latest in the series is Rushdie’s letter to the newspaper on Friday.
