Currently Reading: Poonachi: Or the Story of a Black Goat by Perumal Murugan
This book is about a goat whose life is nothing short of a miracle. The goat is attacked by vultures, is impoverished and is almost stabbed to death by a mysterious cat. Yet, the goat lives.
Shortlisted for JCB Prize 2018, this book is going very well so far. Some say this is the Indian version of Animal farm. Some say it is an allegory to the current state of affairs in the country. I’m yet to find out.
Recently Read: Ghachar Ghochar by Vivek Shanbhag
This is a short novella translated from Kannada taking upon convoluted relationships in our lives. It is a story about a middle class family who turns from rags to riches over a business. The stark contrast between their lives before and after the acquisition of money is brilliantly portrayed. I loved this book , devoured every bit of it.
Next Read: Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal
The title is catchy. Right?
I’m adding this book to my next reads pile after getting inspired from The Bibliofile’s post of 100 best Books of Books of all Time. Have you read this book?
