Hi, Liz!-- Mahasweta Devi's "Imaginary Maps," translated by Gayatri
Spivak, which is about the Dalit movement in India and ecological
destruction, among other things.

Hope you're doing well. Things are good here at NYU. I'm applying to PhD
programs in the winter, and Cornell is on the list. Probably going to
try for the MFA-PhD. I'm writing a novel "on the side" these days...

How are things in Ithaca?
