Not a quilting book...
I bought a paperback today, " The White Tiger" by Indian author, Aravind Adiga. It is a 2008 Booker Prize winner, and highly recommended by a friend who teaches literature. The first seven pages are quotes from positive reviews: " Unsettling", "Cynical", "Dark", " HIlarious", "Brilliant" "Drolly funny", so I don't really know what to expect.
It must have come out before the movie "Slum-Dog Millionaire", but I think it is a picture of the poverty in Mumbai, in the same entertaining way the movie was.
I will comment on it after I have read enough to have an opinion.
