Rushdie’s new work is said to be inspired by the traditional "wonder tales" of the East, with a story that blends history, mythology and a timeless love story.

Rushdie’s archive is housed at Emory's Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. He was Distinguished Writer in Residence in the English department from 2006-2011 and University Distinguished Professor in Emory College from 2011-2015. He delivered the Richard Ellmann Lectures in Modern Literature in 2004 and the Commencement address in 2015, also receiving an honorary doctorate.
