In 2010, the archive of critically acclaimed novelist Sir Salman Rushdie opened to the public. The archive, part of the Emory Libraries' Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library (MARBL), encompasses not only Rushdie’s manuscripts, drawings, journals, letters and photographs, but also an array of digital materials, including several computers, which hold the complete digital environments in which Rushdie produced his work. MARBL values the Rushdie papers as part of its modern literary collection. After Rushdie published Joseph Anton: A Memoir in November 2012, he stated, “I would like to thank all those whose help and advice shaped this memoir: everyone at Emory University’s MARBL archives, without whose ordering and cataloging work over the last several years my papers would have been in far too chaotic a condition to allow me even to think about this project. . .” (From Acknowledgements: Salman Rushdie, Joseph Anton: A Memoir, New York: Random House, 2012) Rushdie's Midnight’s Children, published in 1981, was selected twice as “the Booker of the Bookers.” He is equally well-known for the publication of his novel, The Satanic Verses, most notably for the death sentence issued by the Ayatollah Khomeini. Rushdie continued to write during the years of the fatwa publishing children’s stories, an essay collection, short fiction, and new novels.
