In the immortal words of Popeye the Sailor Man: I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam.
Published today. #SeeingTheBody @racheleliza_g - beautiful book. https://twitter.com/FreemanReads/status/1270334834578264064
Thank you. I was very happy to see this. https://twitter.com/IndiaStoughton/status/1268220310567948289
Here’s something I just wrote. https://twitter.com/WashPostPR/status/1268218122705739778
You can dish it out but you can't take it, huh. https://twitter.com/parul_sehgal/status/1263839357229809664
Coleridge wrote about the “motiveless malignity” of Iago towards Othello. There are critics I think of as “Iagos” of this type. @parul_sehgal is high on that list. https://twitter.com/adijnas/status/1263825269628047362
If you want better reviews, there are plenty of good ones. But a better idea is to throw away the reviews and just see what you think of the book. Thanks for reading. https://twitter.com/blue_lounge_/status/1263803703594811392

Thanks. I’ve seen at least three scholarly papers discussing the eyes, but I enjoyed Julian’s thoughts on the subject, that’s all. https://twitter.com/sansip/status/1263305989337407488
According to Julian Barnes in Flaubert’s Parrot, Madame Bovary’s eyes change color a number of times in the book. https://twitter.com/pacogoldman/status/1263302644136804353
I’ve spoken in Cambridge many times since then! Hope you managed to get to one of those events. https://twitter.com/mraines01/status/1262819834443763714
Dear Gabe, I’m so glad you’re enjoying my Haroun and congrats on your excellent ”opposite paragraph”! https://twitter.com/suzipaisley/status/1260419084539367425
That’s actually isn’t how it begins, but a sentence patched together from different parts of the first page. The book’s publisher should know better than to misquote the book. https://twitter.com/penguinindia/status/1260104486703427584
Sorry, I don't remember. Are you thinking of The Idea of Empire, documentary about Edward, made in 1993? Can't recall now if Eqbal was part of that. Directed by Tim May and Frank Hanly. https://twitter.com/ursulamurphy123/status/1259991640061677572
RT @PollySamson: This is so great.
Just dive in! Enjoy! https://twitter.com/jmisky33/status/1259462222486605824

You’re right about two things. That’s a fake quote - it’s nothing I ever said. And I don’t consider myself a Muslim. The rest... no comment. And goodbye. https://twitter.com/salafi_rakibul/status/1257437365997645824
This isn’t exactly right. Long ago I met various people who claimed they had worked on such novels. I have no idea if they really exist. I suspect they don’t. https://twitter.com/thirunat66/status/1257283103556423682
Well if you want the detail, at that time Dyer was an officer in the British Indian Army which did use the term Brigadier General. https://twitter.com/guykevernebody/status/1257085260736557058
Yes in the passage about Jallianwala Bagh https://twitter.com/djextracrispy/status/1257058199041183744
Yes, rifles. That mistake has been sitting in the text since 1981. I should fix it. Thanks. https://twitter.com/bhaktapradipta/status/1256978631152349185
My old friend Rosanne Hodin has written a delightful and funny memoir of her family's crazy life in the English countryside. Perfect escapist reading for these locked-down times. #growinggoatsandgirls
RT @cirseiu: Calling for #PPE ! 📢
Very probable. Sounds right. It’s a long time ago and I’m afraid I don’t remember. https://twitter.com/jonbtrade/status/1250212779988070401
Thanks. But don’t hold your breath. https://twitter.com/poeatri30/status/1250170455467663360
Yes. In writing QUICHOTTE for example I was helped by two SF stories, one by Arthur C. Clarke, the other by Katherine MacLean. Details in acknowledgments. https://twitter.com/aswinsek/status/1250165446168346624
Yes. You should apply to the Emory Manuscripts and Rare Book Library (MARBL). https://twitter.com/poeatri30/status/1250156825728757763
Yes. I think I made up the Robert part too. https://twitter.com/johnwing5/status/1250159510229929987
Reshevsky published a number of excellent books about chess but I think I may have made this one up. https://twitter.com/poeatri30/status/1250153536811302914
Keep turning the pages. https://twitter.com/theumarkazmi/status/1250115513444753408
Amongst other books, yes, certainly. https://twitter.com/miagilani/status/1250086527922835457
Not a mistake. Giuliani and Koch are both former mayors of New York. So, yes, a sort of joke. https://twitter.com/marvinpa11/status/1250089081197015047
Yes! I remember reading the Gavaskar story in the paper not long after the novel came out and was amazed at the parallels. https://twitter.com/theshaunus/status/1250113742529912832
Thank you for reading! Re: influences, I haven’t read the Blind Musician book, and Suskind’s Perfume was published 4 years after Midnight’s Children. https://twitter.com/theshaunus/status/1249955494535430155
