Rushdie was the subject of Nobel campaigns to try and give him the award last year after he was attacked as he was about to give a public lecture in New York back in August.
The award was given to Arnie Ernaux instead but it would be no surprise if instead Rushdie was to win it this year with his novel being released.

Bookmakers have Haruki Murakami as the second favourite in the betting market for the 2023 Nobel Prize for Literature.
Murakami has long been linked with winning the Nobel Prize and at one point was 10/1 second favourite in 2021 for the award.
This time around though he is the 5/1 second favourite and 2023 could finally be the year that he wins it.
Critics in the past have said though that the lack of political statements present in his work could be the main reason why he wouldn't.
The 2023 Nobel Prize for Literature will be announced by the Swedish Academy in Stockholm, Sweden.
The prize is set to be awarded on 10th December 2023, with the announcement of the winner usually made in October.
The winner of the prize will make a Nobel lecture at the awards show where they speak about their work.
