Reviews of Culling Mynahs and Crows – In Kitaab and The Sunday Guardian

I am rather late in posting these. The review in Kitaab happened weeks ago and the one in The Sunday Guardian last week.

Author and editor Monideepa Sahu wrote an in depth review in the Singapore based magazine Kitaab. Monideepa is a former banker, whose  books have been published by Zubaan and Penguin respectively. Her short  fiction for both adults and young people have been widely anthologized in India and abroad. She is a fiction editor at Kitaab and blogs at http://www.monideepa.blogspot.com/

Here is Monideepa’s review: Kitaab Review: Culling Mynahs and Crows by RK Biswas

Poet, Critic, Novelist and Columnist Sumana Roy wrote a beautiful, almost lyrical piece on both my book and Nabina Das’s book of short stories – House of Twining Roses: Stories of the Mapped and Unmapped, also published by Lifi Publications, India. What makes her review unique is that she seamlessly blended two different books into a single narration hinged on the common motif of home/house/living spaces. I haven’t read a review like this before. I am still excited about it. Sumana is a wonderful poet and writer herself, and many like me enjoy her columns in The Sunday Guardian immensely.

Here is Sumana’s review of The House of Twining Roses and Culling Mynahs and Crows:

Btw, I have a page in my blog where the online sites where the books can be bought are listed. You’ll find Nabina’s book at the same places as well; so once you hit a site do search for her book of short stories. 

Day 5 of Culling Mynahs and Crows in The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed (Sundress Publications)

Hello, and welcome!

The 25th  of April was the fifth and final day of my “stay” at The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed,

brought to you by Sundress Publications.

You can read the last extract from my novel Culling Mynahs and Crows below.

It really is the last extract, because it’s the very last bit of the book. 

In case you are curious about what happens next,

a couple of sequels are in the cards, and one is

exclusively about Sal and Aggie, how they met and how their relationship grew,

and of course that trip they both have to take back to Aggie’s home country.

For now, you can read the extract at The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed -

Sundress Publications’ blog,

where they promote women writers from across the world.
