Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Hanuman Dhoka [The Search For Froitt]

In 1996 Froitt Jentzen was swept away and drowned while swimming in the Trisuli river in Nepal, in 2012 the notes and drafts for a book he was working on was delivered to me. I was supposed to work with Froitt on a book which we gave the working title ' Tole's in Kathmandu', a book about the people who have their business on the streets and town squares of Kathmandu.
In 2013 I went to Kathmandu to follow Froitt's traces to find out what really happened.
