Going bonkers with the preparation to speak tomorrow. I can't wait for it to be over!

To distract myself from the pain, I'll blog a little about Asne Seierstad, the Norwegian journalist who spent a year living with an Afgan family in Kabul. Her book, The Bookseller of Kabul, has been a #1 bestseller in Norway and is doing a brisk trade in Britain. She'll now go to the top of the charts in the U.S., since the bookseller who welcomed her into his home is now suing. Evidently she unveiled a little too much about his family life, particularly the lives of his wives and the other women in his household. Sounds intriguing. Definitely have to get my hands on a copy.
