Bombs, bands and birds recalled as novelist Salman Rushdie trips down memory lane

By George Lowery

Novelist Salman Rushdie knew how to win over the standing-room-only audience in Uris Auditorium Oct. 18: By paying tribute to Cornell writers. First he described himself as a "Pynchonista," having dined (once) with Thomas Pynchon '59. Then he said he reveres Vladimir Nabokov "and one can only hope to be worthy of his shade."
