Last week on the 18th of August, I proclaim ...
Wrong film, sorry. (Which one?)
But on the 18th of August, there was a discussion around my book Roadrunner at the American Center in New Delhi. The writers Manjula Padmanabhan and Stephen Alter were the invited panelists, and Michael Pelletier of the US Embassy led the discussion. I've had a number of these events over the last several months (as some of you who've followed this space might remember), and this was one of the more stimulating ones. There were about 70 people who braved the Delhi traffic and rain to attend, several of them asked interesting questions and some stayed to chat afterwards. Thank you, all.
Yesterday, I got a note from someone called Mark Klassen. He said he had been in the front row at the event, bought my book at the end and read it over the next few days. When he finished, he wrote a post about it on his blog. It's a remarkably thoughtful examination of some things I wrote about.
I'll say no more. Take a look: War and peace in my Delhi life (the second section of the post is about my book).
