December 9 2019 On a second read I bump the rating to five stars because this collection is amazing I shared thoughts on writing outside one s identity and how ably Bhuvaneswar depicts and analyses interracial relationships of all kinds romantic platonic professional relationships that don t easily fit into any categories on bookstagram45 Full reviewIt s frustrating when a book for the time you spent with it completely captured your mind had you reading and re reading but when the moment comes to render this experience legible to others mutenessI can share what I loved most The story settings are split between the USA and India Most if not all of the Indian characters still retain a strong connection to their history and culture whether they are 1st or 2nd generation migrants That s true for those with connections to other countries as well It helps to create a transnational space in which I travelled back and forth visualising the lands crossed I checked maps to help or occupying an in between in which a NYC borough or a central Indian city could never be read in isolationBecause of this maybe because of the deep impression the first and title story made what stood out was the permeability of borders and boundaries real and imagined desired and violently transgressed These bordersboundaries are philosophical political national racial moral of the physical emotional and psychological are the ultimate which is life death and possible immortality Stories can be shocking in their grounded realism shocking because they follow stories in which the borders of our agreed reality prove insignificant and characters escape the pageMany stories in this collection deal with marriage and children losing them wanting them not wanting them not being able to have them How do characters respect the new boundaries marriage creates how do their bodies needs and desires influence that respect or lack thereofA single body is its own sovereign territory too and stories explore its vulnerability and strength How the mind builds protective barriers how memory and instinct move to help othersThere is so much here Myth and disaster power and history cruel pride petty prejudice complicated friendships and clumsy effective sisterhood I am still working through it in my mind I haven t touched on a uarter of what this collection does I remain amazed weeks later that this a debut How My personal rating is that it defies rating I don t think about these stories in terms of goodbad I just want to know and about them If you want a book that may take up a semi permanent corner of your mind so that you can return to sift through it at leisure this is it Gifted in return for an honest review

    Summary White Dancing Elephants PDF NEW [White Dancing Elephants] I wanted to like this book but ended up feeling pretty meh about it The stories aren’t bad per se and it’s obvious that Bhuvaneswar has talent but her writing style didn’t connect with mehonestly some of the stories were a slog to get through and I ended up skimming several of them I’d recommend reading “White Dancing Elephants” “Talinda” “A Shaker Chair” “Orange Popsicles” and “Newberry”; the rest are skippable
