How to use sorting in a GridView that implements custom paging?

I am using a GridView that implements custom paging using a LinqDataSource (see code snippet).  This is working as expected, however, my sorting is no longer working.

How do you implement sorting with custom paging?

Thanks,
Mark
protected void linqDataSource_Selecting(object sender, LinqDataSourceSelectEventArgs e)
    {
        int pageSize = globalSalesGridView.PageSize;
        int pageIndex = globalSalesGridView.PageIndex;

        var query = from p in products
                    select p;

        e.Arguments.TotalRowCount = query.Count();

        e.Result = query.Skip(pageIndex * pageSize).Take(pageSize);
}
