A Macmillan Book of Another Sort

Since she isn't one to blow her own horn, it falls to me to point out that our own Suroopa Mukherjee's academic book Surviving Bhopal has just been published in the United States by Macmillan USA's Palgrave imprint.

[I also note that her biography concludes with "She writes fiction in her spare time," which, of course, we all know isn't true of any of this crowd. In our spare time we earn money so we can write fiction. But, of course, biographies often get it wrong.]

I have to say that it looks like a good (if somewhat disturbing) read, especially for an academic book. Here's hoping that universities and libraries from the Atlantic to the Pacific add it to their stacks!

Congratulations, Suroopa!

Thanks, David, for putting this up! Needless to say I am waiting for the Indian edition to get the real feeling of having a book published. But with MNW, virtual friends and well wishers are such a blessing!

Suroopa, congratulations! This looks like a book that will spur people to action. If the lecture circuit includes a trip to Houston, let me know.

I wish you all the best with this. You must have poured every ounce of energy into gathering the material. What spare time? You're incredibly busy.
