All the more so because I live in California now and secretly miss the snow this time of year!

Congratulations to Ira for publishing her 2nd novel!
The Great Indian Love Story is set in a world where appearances mean everything and nothing is as it seems. There’s no time for love in a world that revolves around the latest Ferraris, the hottest nightclubs, diamonds, single malts, cocaine and ecstasy. In this whirl of wild parties, sex and drugs we meet Serena Sharma who lives her life one debauched night at a time, always falling for the wrong men. Her life is a rollercoaster ride: her father’s death followed by her mother’s remarriage, a broken heart and a lost love. Adding to this is her torrid affair with Amar Khanna—a trophy husband, coke addict and serial adulterer. Riya, jaded by her unsuccessful attempt to find a job in America, returns to Delhi to find the city of her childhood changed beyond recognition. Striking an unlikely friendship with Serena, Riya finds her complacent torpor shattered. The Great Indian Love Story is also the story of Parmeet, Serena’s mother, who looks for passion outside her marriage with disastrous consequences, and S.P. Sharma, Parmeet’s husband, who is driven to violence by her infidelity. Ira Trivedi weaves together sex, revenge, glitz, friendship and a chilling murder to create a potent cocktail in this gripping novel on the perfidious nature of love and power.
If you've been published, let us know and we'll highlight it here on the class blog.

As some of you might know, Madeleine Albright has written a new book, entitled Read My Pins. I heard a wonderful interview with her on NPR where she talks about the book and how she used her pins to communicate messages about her diplomatic efforts. You can listen to the interview and read an excerpt from the book here.
Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to get my hands on the book (ie, my library has not acquired it yet). If any of you have read it, please let me know what you think!

I'm interested to hear from other 2006ers- did you go to Wellesley because it was a women's college or despite the fact that it was a women's college? (Or maybe you didn't care either way and your main thought was "All you can eat ice cream and a lake? Count me in!") Leave your thoughts in the comments!
(Thank you to Katie Landise '06 for bringing the NYT piece to our attention!)
