How did I miss this Literary Love Fest?

May 2, 2010

I know I usually write about Desi news in the international news media, but I just can’t afford to pass up this mention of New York in the Desi news media.

My favourite columnist for my favourite paper was in New York this month, and seems to have had a literary orgasm. Pradeep Sebastian has an article in The Hindu‘s Literary Review supplement today, about his visit to the New York Antiquarian Book Fair. His reverent account of encountering priceless first editions had me salivating about the smell of old books (which is probably my favourite smell in the whole world.)

I’m kicking myself for having missed the book fair this year, so I am already marking it up in my calendar for next year, as should you.
