Happy news this morning. My book, along with fourteen others, has been longlisted for the 2012 Man Asian Literary Prize:

I'm enjoying the moment and not thinking about Jan 9.

Hi there, congratulations on your new novel and wish you the very best for the Prize!
I'm a Pakistani living in Australia and usually on the lookout for good books esp from back home - your books are unfortunately not available on kindle, which for ppl like me is the only source for such books that are not yet physically available in Australia - could you ask your publisher to release a kindle version please )of all your books)??
Most known PK writers have theirs available.
Thanks !!

Hi Aruna,

Thanks for writing. My previous two novels. Trespassing and The Geometry of God, are both very much available on kindle. Please see:

Hello Junaid, and hello again, Aruna,

Junaid, thanks for writing in.

Aruna, I did follow up with my publishers about the kindle edition of The Geometry of God, and you're right that it's currently only available to US customers. This is hopefully going to change soon. In the meantime, the hard copy is available on line to all. As is the e-book of Trespassing, as you say... Cheers.
