Just like always I dropped by the public library to return some books and grabbed a few more. One is a novel by an Indian author now living in the United States. Once again, the other is a work of nonfiction by a British author currently residing in London.
- Haunting Bombay by Shilpa Agarwal – After strolling by this 2009 debut novel every week for the last month or so my curiosity finally got the better of me. I’ve had pretty good luck with Indian writers over the years and I’m hoping with this one that luck continues.
- Descartes: The Life and Times of a Genius by A.C. Grayling – I borrowed this one on a whim. Hopefully it will help enlighten me on the 17th century.
