Sunday Salon- It's Fair Time!
Reading? Maybe, when we get home. I'm deep into Amitav Ghosh's amazing River of Smoke, which has lived up to my expectations 100%. It's a deeply engrossing 19th-century-style epic about Asia East and South. I have so much to say about it already and I'm only 1/3 of the way in. Seriously if you are a literary fiction reader Amitav Ghosh needs to be on your personal Must List. I wish every book were this good! I'm also working my way through Aravind Adiga's short story collection Between the Assassinations but let's be honest- it's about Ghosh right now.
What are you up to this fine day? Whatever it is, I hope it's great. More Sunday Salon here.
