Review by Seema
Saw glimpses of mine in ‘My hand’. ‘My black and blue birthday’ brought tears to my eyes. Jake and Jim (in What happened to that love) really makes one think about human relationships and filled me with sadness. ‘Gilligilli-jillijilli’ and ‘The giver of feasts’ sent a chill up my spine..eerie. ‘Gratitude’ was a bit melodramatic subject.. Gopal in ‘What do I do’ was a very good portrait, complete with minute observations and humor.
All in all i liked the stories. All the best for your next release.
Review by Pierre Beaudoin
I was pleased to read your book, in one single sitting. I found you have an active, succinct and direct style which helps move on the narrative (isn’t this what short stories are all about?) and is a perfect match to the short story form.
There is definitely quite a lot of material to draw from in the Indian culture, especially it facing modernization and the contradictions, and I am certain that Western readers would be thrilled to read more of your stories.
Best of Luck.

the cover: brilliantly dark and intriguing.
the stories: deliciously dark. I am still smacking my lips. The synopsis and the cover is what got my attention. I am so, so glad I picked this up. Can’t wait to read your second book.
Wow. what beautiful writing.

I cried my eyes out after I read the first piece, Anytime Now. So moving, so nicely written. I love the way you write. Can’t wait to read the other stories in the collection. ; )
