Here is your shopping list. Go.

You're still reading this blog? Bless you. I will return properly once the book is done. But since you are here, you are clearly both patient and discerning. So. Go to a bookstore.
Get this.

The Barn Owl's Wondrous Capers, Sarnath Banerjee














(more launches coming up in various cities, so visit Sarnath's site often. I'll probably be there at the Cal launch, cheering and whistling)
Also, get this.

The Tenth Rasa: An Anthology of Indian Nonsense, ed. Michael Heyman, Anushka Ravishankar















(Much love to Mike, Nonsense Ph.D. and general genial genius, The Society for the Prevention of Sense and Anushka. Go read now, it's wonderful, and they've done an incredible amount of work collecting nonsense from all around this very nonsensical country)

And while you're at it, this.

Chowringhee, Shankar, trans. Arunava Sinha















(Translated by Bultu, a gentlemen the TOI recently called an internet product and an effortless reproducer. To make him happy, start several blogs at ibibo and make pots of money)

And this.

Crush, Annie Zaidi
