Rushdie on 'If Peace was a Prize'
Salman Rushdie accepted the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade yesterday, and you can watch the entire ceremony here; Daniel Kehlmann's laudatio begins at about the 30:55 mark; Rushdie's speech begins at about the 40:45 mark (adjust the language-settings to 'Originalton' to hear Rushdie in English).
You can also read both the laudation and Rushdie's speech, 'If Peace was a Prize', via this page (not that they make it too easy, sigh ...).
