Recreation

This week’s Hot Reads feature a pink hotel, a red planet, a bright abyss, and a giant burning triangle.   Also, men in very short shorts.  Splendid books all around.  Visit The Daily Beast for the full reviews.

Some snapshots from my end-of-the-year vacation earlier this month.

I’m at the Jaipur Literature Festival in India this week.  It’s a riot.  Between the panels, the parties and after-parties, the crowds, the chaos and the competing theories about just what really went down with Salman Rushdie (and what happened to the writers who read The Satanic Verses in protest), the last several days have been action-packed.  Not much time to write more just yet — still running around and taking it all in.
