Kamila Shamsie and Reetika Vazirani

There's an interview with Kamila Shamsie in today's Hindu. She's the Pakistani author of the excellent novel, Kartography. And she's here in Chennai (or was when the interview took place) as a writer-in-residence at Stella Maris College.

This is one more of those happy signs of better relations between India and Pakistan.

The Washington Post has an article remembering the Indian-American poet Reetika Vazirani. (via Kitabkhana)

(update: George points out that the author of the Vazirani article held an online follow-up discussion.)
