Reviews

‘Fusing politics, power, and poetry, Shah mourns and celebrates in the same breath — celebrating the magnificent past and mourning the distraught present. This blend of emotions with her simple prose makes the reading both an engaging and a fulfilling experience.’ Book review of A Season for Martyrs by Bina Shah.

‘ Amba is an exhaustive, well-researched recapitulation of history told as a tempestuous romance.’
Book review of Amba: The Question of Red by Laksmi Pamuntjak.

‘Thundercloud marks Kire’s evolution as a story-teller who is unafraid to recreate myths drawing from sources other than Naga, while giving it local colour.

And Naga literature in English stands to gain much by it.’ Book review of Son of the Thundercloud by Easterine Kire.
