A very good book, but sometimes it seems to lose its way in heavy-handed attempts at the, um...esoteric? I found that at times the stories were a bit to conscious of themselves, if that makes any sense.

I love a good short story collection. I'm always hesitant to pick them up, but always glad when I do. The stories here are about more or less lonely gay first generation Indian-American men, and they run the gamut of coming to terms with a native culture that feels somewhat alien to navigating the more selfish impulses of desire (infidelity, a resistance to compassion/empathy, etc). At times the settings and themes can feel repetitive - many stories involve aging grandparents or are set in suburban West Virginia - but it's pleasant to watch Rahul Mehta as he limns new angles with each pass. Overall, I felt the character were engaging, and quite of few of these stories are memorable. I look forward to a novel. If you liked this, make sure to follow me on Goodreads for more reviews!
