Salman Rushdie: On Global Literature and ... the Yankees

During author Salman Rushdie's visit to The Leonard Lopate Show to talk up the PEN World Voices Festival, we asked him a couple of questions. Here's what he told us:

1) What are you a fan of that people might not expect?

Well, my answer is the New York Yankees which I'm an addict of and have been for a very long time, much to the annoyance of those friends of mine who are Mets fans.  But to hell with them.

2) If you only had one day left, how would you spend it in New York City?

And the obvious answer is... at Yankee Stadium.
