In August Company – Books Of The Month

Here’s a compilation of the books I read in August – four novels, two anthologies, one biography, and one technical book, along with a short story. A pleasant combination of fiction and non-fiction, serious and not-so-serious ones, classics and contemporary books, including translated works.

1) The Joke – Milan Kundera (Review coming up)

2) If A River – Kula Saikia

    1. Since I’ve dedicated the last year to regional literature from India, I can share some of my findings with you. Some of the authors I read from that era were Rabindranath Tagore, Sri Aurobindo, Toru Dutt, Savitribai Phule, Annie Besant, Sarojini Naidu. I also discovered this precious anthology titled “Unbound”. It covers the last 2000 years of Indian women’s writing – if women-centric world literature interests you.
