I did a presentation at Columbia with my friend Sugi, whose new novel, Love Marriage about the many generations of a Sri Lankan family was published by Random House last week. The logic of the pairing wasÂ somewhat tenuous: we both wrote books, our parents were from the great continent of Asia, and we knew each other from the school paper.
Nonetheless very successful. The South Asian student group got their numbers out in impressive forces. Standing room only (again, it’s about the butt-to-seat ratio).
As I put it. You got fiction and non-fiction, brown and yellow. It was like a literary ethnic combo meal.
