Fame and Fortune

How I love controversies surrounding my books? It puts me straight into the league of a Salman Rushdie or Taslima Nasrin. I wouldn’t mind paying someone to raise objections, but my iconoclasm does the job. I have never had to blow money on questionable pursuits.

Curiosity rides over shockwaves. The trolls enjoy their fifteen minutes of fame, and give me a longer lease. Everybody wants to know what was so intolerable, and possessing a banned copy becomes a matter of prestige. Book-legging is the bane of many organizations and governments. But my wife has made a fortune out of it.
