Rushdie, to judgment.

The Guardian considers the art of kiss-and-tell revenge memoirs:
Filleted Salman, anyone? Literary big fish Salman Rushdie was reminded that hell hath no fury this week when his ex-wife Padma Lakshmi spared no detail of his faults in her new memoir, Love, Loss and What We Ate. The unhappy couple lead our roundup of revenge-wreaking books… 
Padma Lakshmi on Salman Rushdie  
The model-turned-TV-chef-judge’s book lays bare her eight-year relationship with needy novelist Rushdie, 23 years her senior. Lakshmi claims that she had to console poor Sir Salman every year he didn’t win the Nobel prize for literature and that her struggles with endometriosis led him to call her “a bad investment”. When she refused sex due to being in pain, he’d allegedly reply, “How convenient.” 
Revenge rating: 2/5. Satanic versus.
