This week we have a special treat in the form of a conversation with Sujata Massey, the award winning author of the Rei Shimura mystery series. Sujata has now turned her pen to a different genre and she and I talk about her historical suspense novel "The Sleeping Dictionary" being released today (Tuesday, August 20).
 
The launch party for the book is being held at the bookstore "Once Upon a Crime" on Lyndale and 26th and starts at 7 pm. Sujata will be signing copies of her book at the event so here is a great opportunity to purchase a copy, meet with her, and have the book signed.
 
To honor the Bengali context of Sujata's book, several Bengali songs are included in this playlist. These are pieces from Autorickshaw, State of Bengal, Black Star Liner, and Joi.
