“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”
I’m constantly in awe of how the human mind works and how we as humans behave under various circumstances. I’m naturally drawn to stories or books about human behavior, irrespective of whether they’re fiction or nonfiction. This is why when I heard about it happens: Stories of Human Relationships, it piqued my curiosity. When I checked it out and saw that it was recommended by Amitav Ghosh, I was sold.
It didn’t disappoint me at all. This short story collection is enjoyable and a must-read. Here’s my short review of the book.
