As you know, It Can’t Be You is available on Amazon.com. This is for the Kindle version. I am amazed at how popular Kindle seems to be, especially in the US. I guess in India the relatively lower costs make buying physical books still very popular as compared to the Kindle version.
Now, It Can’t Be You is available with a 20 % discount on Amazon UK.

I had the pleasure of participating in an interview with the well-known Indian Book Reviews. The interview has just been posted at their website. I think the questions were insightful and as always, I hope the answers were honest.
In “It Can’t Be You”, Dinaz Dastur is my small tribute to India’s Parsi community.
