Rushdie also said that while his rehabilitation would take longer, he wouldn’t fully return to normal afterward. . “The eye is not coming back. The eye is lost. The hand that was badly damaged is recovering quite well with a lot of therapy. And the other wounds are getting better. There’s a lot of therapy that’s needed. Obviously, there was a quite a lot of PTSD. But I’m getting better,” he told.

The Booker Prize-winning novelist also mentioned that he wants to write about the assault in his upcoming book because it will help him get over it. “Finding a means to write about what happened is something I’m doing, among other things. Whatever is released after that is almost certainly going to be a text about it. That strikes me as a method of sort of taking control of it. I’m still figuring out the specifics. I’m working on it, but I can’t say much more than that,” Rushdie said in the interview. “It’s my aim to do it.
