No Fifty Shades of Satanic Verses, Then?

Salman Rushdie on Fifty Shades of Grey:
“There are some books I really don’t like…that Fifty Shades of Grey is really bad. How can stuff like this get published? The grammar is awful! I mean seriously, how can people get turned on when the grammar is so bad? It’s certainly a deterrent for me!”

Love that man, and thanks to Emma for sharing this gem.
