The launch of India: A Traveller's Literary Companion in Delhi, February 18

I'd like to invite you this Friday, the 18th of February, to the launch of my new book India: A Traveller's Literary Companion at 6.30 pm at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in M Block Market, GK-1, New Delhi.

The book has stories by many great Indian writers, from Salman Rushdie and Vikram Chandra to Bibhutibhushan Bandhopadhyay and Phanishwarnath Renu. The introduction to the book can be found here, and an interview about how it was put together here.

At the launch I'll give a short talk highly opaque, theoretical, jargon-laden, and allusive called "The Pleasures of Indian Literature". Please pre-tune your ears to the polysyllabic range.

You might also like to come to a lecture I'm giving on Saturday the 19th at the Alliance Francaise called "Ten Ways You Can Change Your Life By Reading Novels". All the details are here.

And here is an old post, "Arzee the Dwarf in Delhi, and in love with Delhi".
