In a lighter vein, the protagonist in ‘Sunday Snow Job’ asserts that working girls have to work, even on the Holy Sabbath, while Gomes in ‘Heart of Gold’ finds it is possible to covet your neighbour’s wife and get rich too. ‘Wakulla’ raises the question: can stealing be an act of compassion, and not a sin? In ‘Fall’, Srinivas discovers that one can make love to one’s best friend’s wife without actually committing adultery. And coveting your neighbour’s goods is fine—as long as they are the right ones, as ‘Elegy in a Churchyard’, the tenth story in this rivetting collection, teaches us.
Written with panache and by turns erotic, tongue-in-cheek and shocking, this is a collection of noir and black humour at its best.
