Lost Libido And Other Gulp Fiction - Paperback
Other Specifications. It's a world market in itself given the numbers and diversity. I reserve all judgement on the phenomenon as it is at present often mind boggling in profusion and presentation. I do applaud the search, conscious or not, for a new voice - in an English that is uniquely and authentically Indian. In some sense, I've observed this trend to indigenise this absurd language among Malay writers and have been utterly charmed with that. However, India is so much huger than Malaysia and way more diverse.
Interestingly, though, I seem to be alone in such perverse cogitation. Writings, which have left me totally bewildered, seem absolutely lucid to random readership as vouchsafed by the 'likes' and 'reviews' devoted to such gems. Salil is, thankfully for me, in no such boat. His English is neither pretentious like mine! The slip, if any, is a cross all authors must bear - dialogue, the spoken words It's no mean challenge to create speech, even when the language is totally your own, spoken by one and all, all the time.
Thus, when it comes to rendering this activity where the language is something of a second tongue it can be a task of some proportion. Add to this the fact that, though Microsoft, for example, has Indian English, there is really no or too few defining rules or classifications. Pardon my ramblings and let us return to Mr. Desai's stories. One thing is for sure and that is that our man has investigated and pondered over millions of potential stories. In these seventeen we visit not only murder some three are devoted to this but also marital infidelity, a ghost, a hangman, a streaker, suicide en famille apparently something of a fairly common occurrence in India , and chain snatchers also frequently reported in Indian newspapers.
Hats off to Salil for including the trauma of marks that burdens the average school child in India as also the queasy charitableness and hypocrisy of most humans when faced with abject poverty. Since I live in Pune, the book promised a special experience which is mainly fulfilled by place and person names. Apart from that I did not get that palpable experience of events in a familiar city. As usual, I have been more critical than appreciative, perhaps. Let me make up for that by selecting two stories as my favourites: Hunch on a Highway and Cul-De-Sac.
The first has going for it a marvellous character, quite typical in nature, and a nice surprise quite nearly at the tail end. The second is presented as a kind of exercise in possibilities and is perhaps a glimpse into the author's workings. That can be nice or not as autopsies are rarely everyone's cup of tea.
Seeing the insides of things is both fascinating and revolting. Still, it was a very amusing read! I'd buy the book for the cover alone though the contents are worth at least one good read. A nice gift for any short story lover, and for readers of the new breed of Indian authors writing in English. Good writing Well done. Writes well. Command on contemporary language and modern Indian ethos is very good. Evokes thinking, at the same time enjoyable with out being frivolous or over hyped.
Aug 29, Jawahar Surti rated it liked it. So far read the first 2 stories and they are promising. Well written. You can feel the characters. Gripping stories, both. Overall a satisfactory experience of these short stories. It's all about human behavior in some situations. The characters are true to life and they engross you. Sep 17, Ranganathan Kothandaraman rated it liked it. Some titles are very teasing and will compel you to buy. One of those is 'Lost Libido and other gulp fiction' written by Salil Desai.
And I was not disappointed ;- 'Lost Libido' - a collection of 17 short stories - reminds the writings of other authors if you are a vivid reader of fiction in many languages. You can think of Jeffrey Archer when you are going t Some titles are very teasing and will compel you to buy.
An inspiration of one of the Alfred Hitchcock's classics is 'Who strangled Sharma? Nevertheless, the author engages you with his unbeatable, intriguing writing style. There are also some justice prevailed in 'The snake and the stick', 'Bit on the side' and 'The susceptible conscience'. But my pick would be 'The Perfect Day'. You can buy this book in amazon. Jun 15, Amit Gupta rated it liked it. It is easy to relate to most stories since they are slice of life stories but single-mindedly sets out to dwell on the darker side of humans.
It captures these very moments in the literary equivalent of a mouthful of flavor to be savored and easily consumed i.
Sep 11, Janice rated it liked it. Some of the short stories were rather interesting with unexpected endings. But towards the end you kind of expect an unexpected ending. A bit more careful editing would have also helped. A page turner no doubt, but more to finish the book off than looking forward to the next story.
Worth a read once. Mar 20, Nishant Jha rated it liked it. Nice collection of breezy short stories each with an unexpected ending and some of them real twisted ones!
