Great Regulars: [Salman] Rushdie is a superb novelist, magical,

intellectually satisfying and with a singular style that lures readers to his fantastical worlds. He seems to view the memoir, however, as granting him the license to be a pedestrian writer and his ordeal as giving him the right to say what he pleases, to insult former lovers and friends and to justify, despite some self-flagellation, his bad behavior, especially cheating on his wives. Somehow it was their fault.
