Dear Amitav,
How are you?… Today at American Centre here in Ygn has a book club event and the book is The Glass Palace. People of book club are very diverse, from teens to 72 yrs old. They all agree taht the book is marvelous. They talked how much they appreciate your writing style and effort of research for this book…. Then all book club members wonder when you could come and join the club. They told us if they know in advance of your visit, they would like to read one of your other books at book club and you can join the discussion… Here things get a bit better and I’d like to expand our freedom bit by bit by some new (unusual) literary activities.

….
