I have mixed emotions regarding these short stories. Some of them etched in my mind making me think about them even after closing the book. The Homecoming and The Other Women In my Life are like Oh my god moments. The pathos and the pain in them made my skin crawl. While stories like Stree, Naked made me cry out for more. Ms. Nagaraj has a very strong connection with human emotions. She can bring out those emotions which most of us will overlook. I feel cheated as a reader that she wrote an anthology for I want more the stories. The story Stree has such a strong woman protagonist that it can create a full novel. I am looking forward to reading more from Ms. Nagaraj.
Review by Geeta Nair:
A motley collection of short stories that bring out the various facets of life and human emotions, ‘Fragments’ touches hearts and tickles the brain. Each story is a surprise and showcases the creative side of the storyteller beautifully.
