It was a great pleasure to speak to all of you and I hope you enjoyed the chat with the wonderful Elaine Petrocelli.

Thank you for tuning in from all over the world and thank you for your kind and supportive messages. Though social isolation has proved onerous on many of us, books, unsurprisingly, can be a great balm for the sense of detachment we are all feeling.  To that end, I list below some books that I hope will challenge, entertain, and provide you companionship through these difficult days. Looking forward to the days of open bookstores and to perusing the aisles again for hidden literary gems.

In the meantime:

  • Sum — David Eagleman
  • The Namesake — Jhumpa Lahiri
  • Seven Brief Lessons on Physics — Carlo Rovelli
  • All the Names They Used for God — Anjali Sachdeva
  • Richard II — William Shakespeare

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
