The app would then function as both journey planner and universal payment platform, knitting everything from driverless cars and nimble little buses to shared bikes and ferries into a single, supple mesh of mobility. Imagine the popular transit planner Citymapper fused to a cycle hire service and a taxi app such as Hailo or Uber, with only one payment required, and the whole thing run as a public utility,

On "Hatchet Job of the Year": Zoë Heller on 'Joseph Anton' by Salman Rushdie in The New York Review of Books

Quoting my curmudgeonly friend Govind re hatchetjoboftheyear.com:

The takedown of Rushdie was long overdue, as was that of Martin Amis. And there is the dissection of just pure plagiarism by Craig Brown. Here is a great bit from Zoe Heller’s review of Joseph Anton.

——————

Rushdie’s shuddering hauteur at this moment may strike the reader as a bit rich, coming from a man who spends much of his memoir recalling encounters with pop stars, Playboy bunnies, and “hot” pop-star girlfriends in the breathless style of a young Austen character writing up her first visit to the pump rooms at Bath. But Rushdie would have us understand that his copious accounts of nightclubbing with celebrities are the record of a doughty man’s will to survive, of his commitment to a moral duty:

He would eat at Balthazar, Da Silvano and Nobu, he would go to movie screenings and book launches and be seen enjoying himself at late-night hot spots such as Moomba, at which Padma was well known…. Only by living openly, visibly and fearlessly, and being written about for doing so, could he reduce the climate of fear around him which was now, in his opinion, a bigger obstacle than whatever Iranian threat still remained.

If he hadn’t been out there, frugging with Padma at Moomba, the terrorists would have won, you see.

Vicious and priceless.
