about book

In these compelling stories, Sathya Saran straddles two distinct worlds- the surreal and the very real. These are maps of the mind, charting the unknown and the intangible and connecting it with the here and now of everyday life. These stories are about love and understanding, about despair and courage and about fear and faith.

These and many more stories, regulated by a prose that is both fluid and simple, create a rich and varying landscape and make you reach into the hidden niches of memory, to grab at familiar moments - either actually lived or fantasized about, and sometimes...feared.
