Thanks to Marshal Zeringue!
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.
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.
Thanks, Rocky Mountain News! One of my Iowa classmates, Nina Siegal, is also on this list.
Read some of my reading recs for the year here. Thanks to my Iowa pal Edan Lepucki for asking me to do that! It’s a great blog.
… includes Love Marriage!
See tomorrow’s Book World. Online here. (Click on the fiction tab.)
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.
After a long silence, I’m trying to return to blogging!
Two recent posts at Sepia Mutiny. The first, a live-blogging of a Law & Order episode that purported to feature a storyline about Sri Lankans. The second, a post about my trip to Torino and my adventures with my fellow South Asian author, Tahmima Anam.
