Haresh Daswani has a fascinating story-telling style that engages the reader from the very first page. He shows quite a gift for creating rather ordinary people in somewhat odd situations. It's that twist of just a bit odd that brings a unique, life-like quality to each story. His descriptions of both the character and the environment are impeccable. You don't just read the story, you experience the story. That takes talent. I'd love to have his talent for description.
Most fascinating of all is how Daswani weaves extraordinary philosophical ideas into these ordinary --- almost unassuming --- characters and settings. You're not expecting it to be as profound as it turns out to be. That's a big plus in my book.
If that weren't enough, Daswani's sense of brevity is uncanny. The story is not so long that it interest is lost, yet short enough to leave the reader wanting more and pondering what happens next.
This collection of short stories is highly entertaining, thought-provoking, insightful and funny. Best of all, they are stories very well told.
I would read more of his stories any time.
