"The Patience of the Spider"? That sounds interesting.

And the book is worth reading. If you read it, I'd be interested in hearing what you think of the title then.

Sounds interesting. I don't know if they are available in India yet (I like to buy from bookshops).

ধনবাদ for your comment. Would the books' presence on the shortlist make publishers more likely to bring out editions in India? If not, are British editions of English-language books generally available there?
