2410 : Reading list of 2018 : #8 : Revenge of the non-vegetarian by Upamanyu Chaterjee




(Images from Scroll.in)

A strange book by Upamanyu Chaterjee. Has none of that "potty humor" that is both hilarious and juvenile at the same time, but more importantly was his signature.

And yet, he retains his ability to notice and verbalize the everyday in some of the poignant ways. I have read all of his book (except Mammaries of the welfare state), and he is scathing and almost "goose bumpish" in his ability to be poignant about the everyday (Read the Last Burden if you must!!)

70 odd pages of a story that pulls you in - into a world from the 50s. 

Completely gripping, but not his best or the best I have read in recent times.

I will rate it 7/10.

Brings my 2018 reading total to 2680.

Take a bow, Mr. Chaterjee, I do wish I could write like you. I really do !!
