A conversation from the archives with the author Vikram Chandra about his nonfiction book, Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code, the Code of Beauty (Graywolf Press). 

This week’s Write the Book Prompt is to include a few (let's say three) of the following items together in a story, scene, poem, or essay: 

  • a dock fender for a boat
  •  the bow of a violin
  • a leaky pen
  • a basketball hoop
  • an Apple II Computer

Good luck with your work in the coming week, and tune in next week for another prompt or suggestion.
