Raised in India and Pakistan and educated in England, Sir Salman Rushdie is one of the most celebrated and controversial authors and critics of our time. His novel The Satanic Verses provoked a fatwa (religious edict) by Ayatollah Khomeini calling for his death, as a result of which he spent nearly a decade “underground,” seldom appearing in public. A leading proponent for free speech, Rushdie was knighted by the British government in 2007.

About Silver Car Auctions:
Since our firm was founded in 1979 (our first auction had 120 cars), Silver Auctions has had one simple goal: to be the best collector car auction company in the business.
From that modest beginning, we now produce 30 auctions a year in 10 Western States and Canada. Some are small and some big (Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Sun Valley, Idaho). Some are enormous. (Hot August Nights Auction in Reno and Fort McDowell Auction in Arizona). Our annual Hot August Nights extravaganza in Reno is widely recognized as the nation’s premier collector car event.
