Ep 15: Reading Lahiri in Peru

Playing tracks by

Husky and Radiohead.

Featuring special guest Suchandrika Chakrabarti. This week we put a different spin on the Dear Reader Challenge and talk about reading books set in travel destinations completely different from your own. We sing the praises of Ann Patchett (Bel Canto, State of Wonder) and Jhumpa Lahiri (Unaccustomed Earth, Interpreter of Maladies), and Suchandrika tells us about the Shakespeare of Bengal, Rabindranath Tagore. Other titles and authors that get a look-in: Fragrant Harbour by John Manchester, The Following Story by Cees Nooteboom, Motorcycle Diaries by Che Guevara, Adios Cowboy by Olja Savicevic, The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.
