Reviews

‘If we look back at how it all began, says Schipper, we find that sex and gender issues have been expressed in oral traditions…Such oral ‘wisdom’ represents a fascinating cultural history, and proverbs are a most telling part of that serial narrative. Based, therefore, on research of proverbs from 245 languages, the author goes on to analyse them on the basis of the specific references to women in proverbs.’ Book review of Never Marry a Woman with Big Feet by Mineke Schipper.

‘In a predominantly non-vegetarian country tired of worthless beef politics, this literary intervention which does not seek to preach, but only to tell a story, is most refreshing.’
Book review of The Revenge of the Non-Vegetarian by Upamanyu Chatterjee.

‘The real reason to read this book is to see Ali disembowel conventional wisdom through irreverent questioning and common sense. Book review of Running Away from Elephants by Rauf Ali.
