NEW YORK — A memoir by Salman Rushdie is coming in 2012.

Random House, Inc. said Thursday it will release the book by the author best known for the 1988 novel "The Satanic Verses" and the call for his death by Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini (ah-yah-TOH'-lah hoh-MAY'-nee).

The memoir, currently untitled, will cover Rushdie's childhood, his family life – he has been married four times – and his time in hiding because of fears about his safety. Rushdie's other books include "The Moor's Last Sigh" and the classic "Midnight's Children."
