Review: Remnants of a Separation

Rating: 4.5 Stars Objects have a way of inspiring the mind to remember things it might have forgotten. I got Aanchal Malhotra's book from Karachi, back in July 2018.

This is my kind of book, with enough twists and turns, and grey characters to make me happy. This is... Continue Reading →
