Dear Librarians,

When I left India I was afraid I had lost the source of all my work. But I find I am still writing about it—whether about the little Himalayan town where I was born (THE ARTIST OF DISAPPEARANCE) or my experience of the publishing/translating world of the '60s and '70s in India (Translator/Translated) or the landscapes I had driven through or lived in once (The Museum of Final Journeys). To me these stories are like the photographs in an old album that I brought along with me, one that brought them alive once more.

My very best wishes to you,
Anita Desai
