Stranger Than Fiction 1 by Aneeta Sundararaj comprises three divergent stories:
The first, "Parineeta, My Angel" is a heart-warming vignette about a young girl and her father, caught in a difficult situation.
The second story "Negotiations" is hilarious. Every freelancer who has ever had to deal with an impossible client will smile wryly as Aneeta narrates the downward spiral of her negotiations with Peter. The ending is sublime.
"Packet Drink, Please," the final story set in Malaysia contrasts Aneeta's memories of her childhood with an imaginary satirical scenario if she were to blindly follow all tenets of her religion.
What impressed me most about this book is that Aneeta paints word pictures and evokes long-forgotten memories using a rare economy of words. This is flash fiction at its best.
