Artist Jayant Kripalani is used to bringing stories to life visually, be it in film, television, or theater. But he is also an author whose first book, New Market Tales, brought out nostalgia and history in full force. And now, his second book Cantilevered Tales, promises to bring reality to the fiction that we read. The story of everyday people and their quirks, Cantilevered Tales has a simple but attractive cover, and an even intriguing blurb.
Here’s wishing everyone a happy, happy World Book Day! What’s a world without books? 😀 And what’s better a way to celebrate World Book Day than to talk about love and a very loved author called Ruskin Bond?
The title of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five had always been more prominent than the author himself. The book is on so many lists that it becomes difficult to avoid, popping up in the unlikeliest of places. And because of this, his name slowly started the process of gaining a place in my list of must-read authors. But it is not this one that I decided I’d start my Vonnegut journey on. I picked A Man Without a Country instead.
Okay, so Wonder was on my TBR list for a long time. I had heard so much about it that I knew I had to get my hands on it soon. But unfortunately, the movie Gods made sure the movie was announced before I could read the book. And before I could lay hands on the book, I had to go watch the movie. Thanks to my husband. 😉
The Woman Who Saw the Future is author Amit Sharma’s second novel. I had the opportunity to review his first, False Ceilings as well. And after reading both of them, I can say that he has a unique style that draws you in to the story and helps you ignore the little things that grate on your nerve for just a few seconds.
When a book has a title as interesting as Becoming God, you sit up and take notice. You have a lot of expectations from it. And when it’s a new author who’s writing about this seemingly complicated topic, the excitement mingles with a sort of apprehension that you cannot explain. After all, you will now get to read a fresh perspective of divinity.
