REVIEW: Does Mohsin Hamid’s “How To Get Filthy Rich In Rising Asia” Deliver?

How To Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, Riverhead Books, 228 pp., $26.95, on sale now Somewhere, a canny business professor may be plotting to put Mohsin Hamid's astringent new novel into an MBA course.

Presented by 10x10, a social action campaign, the film features nine... Read More →

We were thrilled to receive an invitation to participate in Toni Morrison's first live digital book signing, courtesy of Google Play. We weren't sure what to expect from the format—how would the digital signing of books work? How long would she speak? Would technical difficulties get in the way?  We were pleasantly surprised at how well the event went. Toni Morrison broadcast live from Google's New York offices and the event was streamed live over several websites. Readers were encouraged to submit questions beforehand and a lucky few were selected to speak with Ms. Morrison herself. After the event, readers would be able to download signed digital copies from the Google Play store.  Casual, comfortable and inviting, the digital book signing was billed as a first-of-its-kind event,...
