Beyond sadness, life goes on, work goes on, and the words are starting to return as well.
Coming soon, my new picture book from Tulika Books, titled Out of the Way! Out of the Way!
No, you're not seeing double, the title does repeat itself. The allegorical story is about a tree and a road making room for each other, while a boy who knows them both grows along with them.
The additional oddity here is that the bylines also repeat themselves--sort of. This book is illustrated by my almost-namesake, artist Uma Krishnaswamy. See "our" Cynsations interview.
I got to meet Uma briefly this time and see the beautiful art she has created for this book.
The book will be published in English and 8 Indian languages. I'm not sure how the i and y will get differentiated in all those scripts in which an "ee" sound is an "ee" sound, "i" and "y" get written the same, and Krishnaswami=Krishnaswamy.
