I haven't quite worked out what fiction I'll be writing about next month, other than Naguib Mahfouz's just-released Karnak Café.
But there'll be pieces on some splendid new non-fiction, including:
An essay on Jawaharlal Nehru as a writer of English prose, on the occasion of the release of The Oxford India Nehru, an anthology of Nehru's best essays and speeches
Banker to the Poor, the autobiography of the Bangladeshi economist and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus
Ryszard Kapuscinski's Travels With Herodotus
Rajiv Chandrasekaran's Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone
and possibly Rajmohan Gandhi's recent biography of Mahatma Gandhi
