Salman Rushdie knows Dick -- at least according to this item that ran in the Rush & Molloy column in today's New York Daily News:
Young Dick Cheneymust be riveting. Salman Rushdie was reading the satirical bio in the middle of the mosh pit when Jihae played at [New York club] Plumm. Authors Bruce Kluger and David Slavin, the National Public Radio satirists, were flattered but not surprised. "Of course Salman would be glued to a book about Cheney," Slavin quipped. "After all, he did write 'The Satanic Verses.'"
Now on Sale!
