Babu at Kitabkhana is back posting, with a vengeance. Also, she's been outed: "Hurree Babu" is actually someone we had been mentioning in some recent posts for her non-pseudonymous work.
One of Kitabkhana's new features is going to be a monthly "Inbox," a listing of notable books released in India. This month features two new anthologies of Indian writing (neither of which have been released in the U.S.), a new novel by Siddartha Deb (recently reviewed in the Village Voice), as well as yet another book by Pankaj Mishra (India In Mind). Both the Deb novel and the Mishra book are available in the U.S.
Interesting on Mishra -- Amazon says his "Buddha" book was released in December 8, 2004, and India in Mind on January 4, 2005. That's two books out in a single month!
