"Nostalgia, Embarrassment And Dismay"
It's Harry Potter Week all over again, and stores such as Crossword in Mumbai are so excited that -- as of this writing -- they haven't even bothered to stock other books such as Amartya's Sen's The Argumentative Indian.
Meanwhile, The Observer's Robert McCrum isn't impressed:
"When the current generation of Harry Potter readers has grown up, it will look back on the Harry Potter phenomenon with a mixed thrill of intense nostalgia, embarrassment and dismay. Our children's children will certainly read these books, but as curiosities, bizarre literary relics from a lost world."
