Our Common Saxophone.–Documenting the Grey


ektaAuthors Neeraj Solanki and Ekta Bhandari.

Publisher APK Publishers.

ISBN 9789381791295

A collection of stories and poems by Neeraj and Ekta.
The stories explore the grey areas of human mind, and situation. There are 21 stories and 16 poems.
I have to be honest poetry is not my forte so I did not venture.
The stories were however quite interesting. Basically in third person narrative one got the impression missing the action. The twist in killing the maid, though predictable did deliver the pat, though not the punch. The Three Teddy’s was an interesting tale to me reflected the society today, which is uniformity. The Beast Within does have a great potential of becoming a full-fledged novella. So does the Fragrance of a Night’s stand.
I did feel like I was peeking into an author’s idea-map for future novels. The few conversations in the narrative made me wonder if they were written in Hindi and a translate button was hit.
I am actually looking forward for these stories to grow into full novels. The Killing and the fragrance of a night stand particularly.
