About the Author
David remained a prolific writer until his death in 2008 from a stroke. In novels, novellas and short stories, the urbane materialism of Manhattan high society collides with Asian idealism, which is debated, debunked and passionately embraced by characters journeying across America, India and Nepal. David taught comparative literature at Sarah Lawrence College and Hindi language and literature at Columbia University. Fluent in at least six European languages as well as Hindi and Nepali, he was one of the most accomplished linguists and literary translators of the late twentieth century.
