I was only about thirty pages into Hisham Matar’s In The Country of Men, and was looking forward to the rest, when somehow I managed to leave my copy under my seat on the plane from London. So now I am back to my summer reading list. I’m well into Kiran Desai’s The Inheritance of Loss, and enjoying it tremendously. At first, I was slightly put off by the jagged narrative, but Desai’s observations are so sharp and her voice so clear that I quickly got past that and I am now having a great time. A marvelous piece of work. More on it soon, I hope.
