9780143068471: Yellow is the Colour of Longing

In these bold, wry and ebullient stories, Meera s astonishing range of narrative techniques is on full display as she expertly lays bare the faultlines behind the façade of everyday life, sometimes with dark humour and sometimes with astoundingly bitter sadness.

Book Description Penguin Books India Pvt Ltd, India, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. While What the Souls Do at Midnight and A Cat, Utterly Personal acerbically trace the subtle forms of control exercised on women, the title story explores the absurdity of desire, and The Saga of Krishna refers directly to the series of sex-racket cases that created a huge uproar in recent times in Kerala. This selection showcases Meera s impressive range of narrative techniques and her capacity for dark humour. Appropriately, Devika s translations are hardly faithful in the conventional sense. They are, rather, the result of careful consideration of the different senses of meaning that Meera s writing holds, and of the effort to convey the unique texture of each of her stories.
