Salman Rushdie net worth 2022: Author in recovery after stabbing

Writer Salman Rushdie was stabbed when he was giving a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution in New York.

With multiple stab wounds in his body, the 75-year-old author was taken off a ventilator recently. 

He is recovering. His ex-wife and ‘Top Chef’ judge and host Padma Lakshmi expressed relief.

The Indian-born British-American author has written 14 novels, many of which have been translated into over 40 languages. 

He has a net worth of $15 million in 2022. 

His most famous book is 'The Satanic Verses' which sold more than 750,000 copies. 

However, the book sparked controversy since its release in 1988 for its depiction of the prophet Muhammad. 

In 1981, he received critical acclaim and Booker Price for the novel 'Midnight's Children'.
