I'm reading R K Narayan's The English Teacher: 'We were now passing before Bombay Ananda Bhavan, a restaurant. "Shall we go in?" she asked... A number of persons were sitting in the dark hall'
My immediate response was-- Are they wearing masks? This is the new literary criticism

Last Jan 9 I slipped & had a head injury, was bed ridden for weeks. With my palm on my bleeding head, my first thought was what if I could never write a book. This year on Jan 9 look what picture I received from my fabulous publisher @vidhibhargava of Red Panda @WestlandBooks
The rider who came to collect a delivery looked at my book & asked me-is that you? I was masked-I said yes. He ran his fingers over the book cover & said “your family must be so proud of you”-so much has happened recently-but that hushed comment made me cry #immigrants #Londoners
