New Literary Food Fight: Salman Rushdie Vs. Pankaj Mishra Over Mo Yan's Patsyhood
Part 1: Rushdie joins chorus of criticism over Mo's Nobel Prize, calling him "a patsy of the [Chinese] regime." Part 2: Mishra, mentioning Rushdie among other writers, argues that writers criticizing Mo should look at their own governments' faults before condemning Mo's accommodation with China's government. Part 3: Rushdie retorts, "It is not for Mishra to tell me not to criticise Mo Yan." The Guardian (UK) 12/17/12
