A collection of nonfiction pieces by the Booker Prize-winning author of Midnight's Children addresses such topics as his fascination with The Wizard of Oz, the 2000 presidential election, the state of the novel, the Muslim faith, life under a fatwa, and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
For all their permeability, the borders snaking across the world have never been of greater importance. This is the dance of history in our age: slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, back and forth and from side to side, we step across these fixed and shifting lines. --from Part IV
With astonishing range and depth, the essays, speeches, and opinion pieces assembled in this book chronicle a ten-year intellectual odyssey by one of the most important, creative, and respected minds of our time. "Step Across This Line" concentrates in one volume Salman Rushdie's fierce intelligence, uncanny social commentary, and irrepressible wit--about soccer, "The Wizard of Oz," and writing, about fighting the Iranian fatwa and turning with the millennium, and about September 11, 2001. Ending with the eponymous, never-before-published speeches, this collection is, in Rushdie's words, a "wake-up call" about the way we live, and think, now.
