At the Cliveden Literary Festival, we all remain in shock at the attack on Salman Rushdie, a man who has always lived his life courageously under threat. The threat comes from those who cannot abide the freedom of speech that is the cornerstone of an open society. Sir Salman planned to speak at the Cliveden Literary Festival this year; of course we will miss him at the Festival, but above all we wish for his recovery and his full return to health and literature.
Andrew Roberts, Natalie Livingstone,Catherine Ostler and Simon Sebag Montefiore
