Sharing Comments on Mirrors & Lamps
Charles Johnson, National Book Award Winner, the first African American writer to win the award after Ralph Ellison.
Nibir, this is a beautiful book! I'm really happy to see that it's close to publication, and that so many of my friends and colleagues (and a former student)have work represented on these pages---Richard Hart, Michael Boylan, Amritjit Singh, Kathleen Alcala. Congratulations on another work of international significance!
Three Deep Bows to You,
Charles Johnson just shared with me the blog announcing your forthcoming book, Mirrors and Lamps: Global Perspectives. It looks terrific. I know Chuck’s piece well, of course, and it is a superb essay. You are doing very important work. Many thanks.
