Short note for Nadeem Aslam

Nadeem Aslam, a Pakistani living in England was nominated for the Booker prize(now the Man Booker Prize) for his book, 'Maps for lost lovers'. His book is available in the Toronto Public Library and is next on my reading list.
Google came up with a shortened interview that was originally conducted for tehelka.com. Interesting details: The book took eleven years to write, while Nadeem worked as a construction worker and a bin man.
