Further Proof That The Age Of Being Politically Correct Has Vanished

"It is extremely important for Indian writers to spread across the world. Fine tales are popular everywhere, but that said, there is a certain curiosity, an exotic charm that intrigues the West. We are still fascinated by Indian stories and their touch of the orient, even when it is writers like Jhumpa Lahiri, who is fairly assimilated. And we are looking for more such authors!"

- Jane Friedman, Harper Collins President & CEO

  • At least someone's being honest about it. Idiotic, but honest.

    Hopefully, in a generation or so, even Indian authors would be assessed on the basis of their literary ability.

    (In the meantime, someone get Amit Chaudhuri on the phone and tell him to be more exotic!)
