Updates!

New stuff on the Articles page (Sepia posts), as well as on the Reviews page (an article by Smriti Daniel, whom I spoke to when I was in Sri Lanka for the Galle Literary Festival).

Also: a discussion I moderated at the Asia Society, in New York. Full video is online… see here for Sri Lanka at a Crossroads: Humanitarian Crisis Looms as Government Forces Approach Victory.

Prairie Lights Tonight; Grinnell on Thursday

I’m excited to be reading in Iowa this week—at Prairie Lights tonight and at Grinnell College, with Saadi Simawe, on Thursday. Details of the PL reading tonight are below (the previous post) and the Grinnell reading is in the Rosenfield Center, Room 101, at 8 p.m. on Thursday evening.

Also, I just added a review to my reviews page! See a take on Love Marriage by Charles Sarvan, writing for Confluence magazine.

The Washington Post

Love Marriage was reviewed in The Washington Post! It’ll be in tomorrow’s print edition, but you can read the review online now. The lede of the piece references (among other things) an essay I wrote when I was 19 and a freshman in college.

The Outlook section of the same newspaper has a piece I wrote about trying to explain Sri Lanka. That, too, is online, with accompanying audio (segment will play automatically).
