Deep Rivers: Selected Writings on Tamil Literature, by François Gros. Translated from French by M. P. Boseman. Edited by Kannan M., Jennifer Clare, IFP / Tamil Chair, DSSEAS, University of California (Berkeley), IFP - Publications Hors série n° 9, 2009, xxxviii, 519 p.  Language: English. Price: 800 Rs (35 €) ISBN: 978-81-8470-172-2.

The book is undoubtedly excellent, like most books published by the French Institute of Pondicherry, but I note that the price of Indian publications is almost equivalent to that of European publications. Until a few years ago books in India were much cheaper.
