Publishers, Place Your Bids

Arundhati Roy announces her return to fiction in words that show that her rhetorical skills remain undiminished: "As a writer I have to go to a different place now. As a person... I want to step off whatever this stage is that I have been given. The argument has been made, the battle remains to be fought -- and that requires a different set of skills...I am very conscious that, from the time of The God of Small Things was published 10 years ago, we are in a different world, a different place now, which needs to be written about differently, and I really very much want to do that."

  • By some peculiar coincidence, the Sardar Sarova, the largest of the Narmada dams, has just been completed.

    Hmm. Timing.
