A free book from Granta

Here, courtesy of John Freeman whom I had the pleasure of sharing a stage with at this year’s Auckland Writers’ and Readers’ Festival, is a free download – this month only – of epidemiologist Elizabeth Pisani’s 2008 book The Wisdom of Whores: Bureaucrats, Brothels, and the Business of AIDS.

Despite the flip title, it is a serious book: the Economist review is here.

The free file is an e-book. I don’t have an e-book reader but downloaded this add-on for Firefox so I can read the epub format in that browser. And now so can you.
