How To Pronounce Knife Book Review
In the tradition of Alice Munro and Jhumpa Lahiri, these short stories explore characters whose day-to-day worlds are compact and wound up tight, after vast geopolitical circumstances had forced them to a new home. Their decisions are less a question of “making the most” of one’s lot in life, and more about navigating this new web of expectations. The stories don’t dwell much on questioning one’s purpose or asking the question why… luxuries that have no urgency in these peoples’ lives. But they don’t need luxury to experience depth, emotion, and drama.
