Book Review- A Basketful of Lies - contd

by Deeptangshu Das

Back to Page 1 of this Book Review

"A Basketful of Lies" records such myriad moments of dream and disenchantment, struggle and stoicism, revenge and redemption. I once again thank the author for this enriching, engaging and thought-provoking book. I also believe that this collection would also allow young students with literary sensibilities to explore the genre of the short story with all the formal and thematic nuances.

Before ending this note, I would also like to congratulate Ms. Ankita Sharma for the wonderful cover design. The bright paintings with evocative symbols and imagery anticipate the larger theme of the collection.

The book is available on Amazon and Flipkart.
