Kiran Desai wins Man Booker Prize

I wasn't surprised to learn that Kiran Desai won the Man Booker Prize for The Inheritance of Loss--which I have but of course haven't yet read. It makes it even more tempting to go back to Under the Volcano in January since she'll be teaching along with Grace Paley. Amazing lineup.

PF: I guess you don't care for literature, so this probably isn't the blog for you. Please go away.
