“Storywallah”- Book Review


“Storywallah” by Kumar Ganesan consists of 14 short stories which takes us back to the malgudi days. Stories featured are the real life experiences of the author.

Every story in one way or the other has something to learn from. These can easily hook the reader to their reading nook and make them read storywallah in one go, reminiscing and connecting events to their childhood and life experiences. It has a tinge of humour in most of them and also addressed some social issues like domestic violence and caste difference.

A story dedicated to the fears of childhood, one dedicated to luck and destiny, one dedicated to belief that men don’t cry and so on. Each story is different from others. The title and cover are simple but attractive. Each character builds up the interest of reader. And the storylines, catching and holding the attention from first to last word. Overall, a perfect read for Sunday afternoon with tea or coffee and snacks.
