Dark and Darker: Compilation of Short Stories
The title Dark & Darker holds the clue to unraveling this multifaceted book of short stories, where trauma, lust, sportsmanship, guile, separation, patriotism, hunger, love, hate, melancholy, and death, all find their exclusively carved space. This compilation is a remarkable effort to both coalesce and scatter, the kaleidoscopic expressions of human life. The writers combine their respective professional expertise to conjure up celluloid-like visions with a perceptive insight into human character and social issues. In a narrative style that breaks all prescribed boundaries, themes ranging from modernization, poverty, communalism, sexuality, madness, terrorism, and disability, have been examined through various dramatic situations and circumstances. The twist in the tale at the end of each story gives them all a precarious edge.
