There is an interesting recitation of tacit sentiments or messages turned upside down in our everyday life. Also, go through a wild ride of fiction across the depths of human chemistry. EeYuva's bookshelf this week has come up with the short reviews of both the above-said reads. Go have a look.
Book: My Jiffies
Author: Priyanka Sharma Kaintura
Publisher: Notion Press
"My Jiffies" is a book of bite-sized stories that have the ability to tug at the chords of your heart. This book has seven categories - Orations, Eclogues, Monologues and Dialogues, Stories, Pathos, Satire and Sarcasm, and finally, Life Aphorisms and Epigrams.
Every noteworthy or insignificant, radical or mundane moment around us is a story, bit only if watched closely. A contained expression, a slightly longer pause, an anxious embrace, expectant silence, disquiet farewell; our jiffies can come from anywhere.
This book captures a string of such jiffies reciting tacit sentiments or messages turned upside down in our everyday life.
Book: The White Marble Burzi
Author: Sharat Kumar
Publisher: LG Publishers Distributors
In his new collection, author Sharat Kumar plumbs the depths of human chemistry and takes you through a wild ride of fiction and episodes from life as seen by him. From the dreamscape of inky nights in main, anchor story, 'The White Marble Burzi', to self-realisation in 'The Home Coming', all snippets weave the thrumming threads of life, vitality and pleasure.
With 'The White Marble Burzi and Other Stories', Kumar brings a rare level of humour, insight and sex to the modern young adult reader. Each story connects the reader to an aspect of humanity, whether it is a search for love, finding space to be what we need to be, or just recognising the person who we can be happy with for a long time.
