Book Review - Janaki Nagraj's Fragments


“I often painted fragments of things because it seemed to make my statement as well as or better than the whole could” - Georgia O'Keeffe.

A serial killer on the loose who chooses a particular day of the month to kill his victims; a strained father – son relationship, when the father returns home after being presumed dead; a girl who can go to any extent for her career and money; a woman openly acknowledging the presence of the many ‘other women’ in her life; a lady's dark past finally catches up with her... Life is an ongoing sequence of events meshed with everyday mundaneness so that it becomes difficult to isolate them.

‘Fragments’ captures the essence of those parts of our lives that we are not proud to show to others. It takes you through a range of emotions and leaves a big question mark on what is supposed to be.

 My Honest Review:

               Fragments is a debut book authored by Janaki Nagraj. It is a collection of short stories, stories which are influenced by real life experiences and day-to-day instances happening around us.

          Fragments has suspense, mystery, horror, romance, exploration of relationships between father and son, a couple who wants to take their relation to next level, so on and so forth.
          Some stories are emotional which brings tears like The Homecoming and If you can’t understand my silence. While Stree, Sexy body big boobs, The other women in my life, I don’t want to be an adult, What goes around are some of the stories which bring out women oriented issues and make us ponder as they depict the truth around us.

          Each story is unique, title of stories apt and book cover beautiful. Fragments is a must read, if you like short stories and also if you like to read about human emotions.
