Sweet and Forthcoming

Snap -- David Leavitt's new novel, The Indian Clerk, takes on the relationship between Cambridge mathematicians G.H. Hardy and Srinivasa Ramanujan. And it's getting great reviews. (Keep an eye out for more.) And litblog The Elegant Variation has a whole week of posts on the book, including a fun-snarky turn from Leavitt himself. Sounds like a winner.

Also a nice buy, if you've got the scratch: the new Kubrick box set (c/o Daring Fireball). 2001, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Eyes Wide Shut, for $56. American dollars. No Strangelove or Barry Lyndon, but if you're me, you've got those.
