Jenwah Did you see the movie? I went to the independent theater here once to see it... "The Namesake"... I could tell it was a good story, but the movie seemed a bit slow to me. I can see how it might be better in book form. Regardless... might be fun to put another face to "Gogol"

Rachel no, i just found out recently that it was made into a movie. i definitely want to check it out. i think it would be difficult to successfully make into a movie, but then again most books are...

Diane Rachel - I think you gave a perfect review of The Namesake. I saw Jhumpa in person when she was touring with the book and she did a reading from it. I also loved the book of short stories, actually more than The Namesake. I don't think she has done anything since, but I hope she has plans to continue writing.

Diane Yes, she is a very elegant and classy woman. She also did a signing, so both of my books are autographed. Love that.
