    1. Parvati Sharma s The Dead Camel and Other Stories of Love is a sparkling debut of a book The twelve stories here are delightful Some of them assume a lightness of tone that is charming Details fringe the stories, yet add a certain wholeness Like this The next day, Amrit s phone rang in an empty house, its shrill tone perplexing the pigeons that sometimes perched on the window sills, warbling indelicately Her prose creates images that are almost cinematic The book doesn t announce itself as gay f [...]

    2. Twelve Stories I really enjoyed six Four, I quiet enjoyed Two I didnt particularly enjoy The six stories I liked so much that they outweigh the six that I was relatively indifferent to This explains the four stars I liked the six stories because they were crisp and very tight No excesses and no writerly self indulgence the stories are well crafted and very insightful.
