وصف المنتج

She moves forward with mincing steps in time to an air inaudible to all but her, as if in precise synchrony with a phalanx of other dancers. But she is alone. Weeping and wailing she beats her breasts rhythmically. She passes bya mourning sleepwalker moving in measure like a male Muharram dancer in a penitential procession in Karbalabearing the unbearable weight of her dead child as though it weighs nothing at all. An evocative collection of thirteen short stories, The Book of Common Signs is set among the women and men who inhabit the streets and by-lanes, the high-rises and hutments of middle-class India. Passionate, seductive and pulsating with raw energy, they break the boundaries of life and art to inhabit a landscape that is a metaphor for the dark anxieties of their own minds. Ashok Srinivasan explores the human condition with clarity and compassion. In Mother and Child: Charcoal on Charred Paper he tells us the story of a married woman whose life unravels after a miscarriage as she finds solace in the love of another woman. In Not to Be Loose Shunted he narrates the story of a young man coming to terms with the absence of his missing father. Ex-votos for a Mask Maker is at one level about Srinivasans own anguish as a writertelling the tale of a playwright whose dramatic characters come to life in order to destroy him. Elegantly crafted and richly layered, this collection of haunting short stories brings alive to the reader an imagination of profound insight and great emotional power.
