Ekphrasis: Little Book of Myriad Stories

Guncha Gupta

This little book of short stories packs quite a punch, effortlessly switching from one genre to another. The author weaves a captivating account through her narration, transitioning from simple romance to spinning a web of mystery to frivolous subjects involving comedy and ghosts to the ghastly effects of war and animal sacrifice. Using levity, the author presents an astounding insight into the frailty of human mind.

The book forces the reader to pause and ponder on the events transpiring in a normal person's life. Winding through labyrinthine subjects, the book deals with several human emotions. The language is simple, easy to understand and stories are suitable for age groups twelve and above.

The author brings to life emotions of a chick, a mare or pesky pigeons with much ease, almost personifying these as characters. The author is aware of the nitty gritty of human nature and depicts these in her stories of the mourning, the blue sapphire and mystery of the manor house. She is able to show greed overcome by conscience, making the reader believe in the goodness of human beings, where at the same time she is able to see through the facades of petty human nature. She is able to bring out the innocent purity of a child's thoughts, painting a vivid, often dramatic picture of imagery and experience, a perfect example of Ekphrasis.

There is such truthfulness in the portrayal of human emotions and experiences that the reader is bound to identify themselves with one character or the other. There is a kind of catharsis of emotions for the reader and he feels relieved after having read the story.

This little book of myriad stories is sure to keep the reader absorbed as well as entertained.
