I’m Keeping The Yellow, But The Rest Has Got To Go!

Standard

In a curious oversight, given how much I was looking forward to it and how I love how it turned out, I forgot to pimp my redesigned website. It went live just before I left for Australia, and although it’s not fully done up just yet, I’m very happy with how it’s looking so far. There’s much more content, and it carries my vibe much better than the first design — which, while splashed with my darling Pondicherry yellow, reflected “me” so little that a close friend called it my “Gone Fishin’ ” look.

Big thanks to Mihir Ranganathan’s fabulous design chops.

A Too Brief Wondrous Book

Standard

I had requested The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao to review — and am so glad I didn’t get it, because I couldn’t possibly have savoured it properly if I had. The one and only thing I didn’t love about the book was that it was about half the length it should have been; it was that good. And now we’ll have to wait like a decade before the next. Sigh. Can someone please inject Junot Diaz with a serum that makes him uncontrollably prolific (look at me talking like Oscar)?
