What Kaavya Viswanathan is writing next

How Holden Mehta Rankled the Phonies: Cynical teenager is expelled from prep school just before Diwali and winds up in a mental hospital.

Mehta-Dick: "Call me Ishwar ..."

Gone With the Samosas: Scarlett O'Mehta struggles to get by on her mango plantation after India's independence from Britain.

(I'm realizing now the point of this joke might be a little obscure to those outside of publishing. So, you can read this.)

The best coverage on this whole Kaavya thing is at The Harvard Independent where they have a whole "Kaavyagate" page.

I had just read an article on this earlier this morning, so I actually knew what was going on for once. I feel so knowledgeable!
