Vermeer
About a year ago, this uber-site of Bach analyses was on blogdex. I think I have just discovered its equivalent in visual art.

Yes, that's a nice site; I had chanced upon it sometime. On another note (pun intended), did you download all the Beethoven symphonies from the BBC site? Unfortunately I missed nos. 6 and 8.

I didn't download any mainly because I have at least three recordings of each symphony already. If you want a good performance of no. 8, try Brueggen or Norrington's first recording of it. The Norrington should be pretty cheap on ebay.

I am writing to you from Simon & Schuster, to offer you review copies of two wonderful works on Indian Literature that we will be publishing this Fall.

Q&A by Vikas Swarup is the story of how an illiterate waiter from Mumbai wins the one billion rupee jackpot in the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and is promptly arrested for cheating. The novel unfolds as he reviews the videotapes with his lawyer, telling her how, growing up an orphan boy, he came by the crucial wisdom and trivia that enabled him to sail through the quiz show without a single pass. It reads a little like a fable, is rigourously logical, and gives us a dark and witty picture of humanity in all its guises

A bestseller in India, Untouchables is Narendra Jadhav's memoir which tells the deeply moving story of his father, who was born an untouchable, and his incredible journey to freedom. This is not only a personal memoir but an important social chronicle of the revolution of India's Dalit class, "the untouchables."

Please contact me and I would be happy to send you a a copy of each book for your review.

Best,
