Year End

I can't believe I've made it on to a year-end list. Manjushree Thapa said this in her Best Fiction article in
"So much of the English literature coming out of India today is marred by its authors’ inability to take pleasure in language. (Which, if you think about it, is quite self-defeating.) If It Is Sweet by Mridula Koshy is an important corrective to this. Every story of this collection shines like a cut-and-polished gemstone lodged in the finest of settings."

It's past the year-end, but I'll have my list out soon.
