While I was staying at Thane, I would regularly visit the book shop "Paperbak" at Vasant Vihar. Mahesh, the owner, was himself pretty well read and would often suggest some excellent titles. After leaving Bombay, I really missed Paperbak.
After coming to Bombay, I yesterday visited Paperbak once again. The collection did not disappoint me. The titles I picked up while I was there include:
Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order is extremely provocative and amazingly insightful. That book deserves a separate detailed post which will happen once I have read it a couple of times.
- Thelonious Monk's The Columbia Years: '62-'68 (3 CD Set)
- Charlie Parker's: Bird: Complete on Verve (Box Set)
