Porcelain Travels in India!
Excited and flattered to discover a great feature article about my book Porcelain Travels on Indian literary website thecuriousreader.in.
The reviewer happened to find my book at a library in Kolkata (I didn't even know Porcelain Travels had made it to a library in Kolkata...); and, in addition to reviewing the book, she explains how it made her look differently at sanitation in her own country. A great article - with some great pics, too!

Matthew Félix has traveled to more than 50 countries and done many short- and long-term stints abroad.
Matthew has lived in European capitals and isolated Spanish villages. He has visited India’s holy sites with a Buddhist monk, slept in a chicken coop in the Arctic, and scaled the sand dunes of the Sahara. He has climbed an active volcano in Chile, been surrounded by gunfire in Istanbul, and traveled the Nile in a sailboat.
Matthew speaks three languages fluently, as well as smatterings of others. When not working on writing projects or on the road, he is likely to be found exploring the streets of San Francisco or hiking the trails of Northern California.
