... and here's the OUTLOOK review -- it's passionately negative. It's what I characterize as a GOOD bad review: it's not a personal attack against me or whatever I may have said in my interviews, but is instead the reviewer's sincere beliefs about what he thinks is wrong with the book. Fair enough! I'm all for informed dissent. Go read the review ...

The Outlook link is dead. Would love to read the review. The evening at Pasha was wonderful...

Hi Eroteme! I've just clicked on the link and discover that it's still live at least from this computer. I set up the link only after getting to Madras, so perhaps there's a friendly cookie on board that facilitates the connection.

You could try going to OUTLOOK -- www.outlookindia.com -- to check their book review page. The piece is called PILLBOX LEERING and suggests that the novel is unabashed child porn (!). You'll need to go before the end of the week if you want to avoid having to register at the site.
