Kiran Desai just won the Booker Prize!
After my last post about "best novels" I found this news heartening. And, of the six nominees, three were women. Is it that the UK is more forward thinking than the ole U S of A, or what? Anyway, the name of her book is The Inheritance of Loss, which sounds good.
Other good news for women is the Gift of Freedom Award. $50,000, sisters! This year the award is for a fiction writer. Let's get out there and apply.
Maybe it's the cold medicine (let's hear it for DayQuil), but I'm feeling more optimistic.
