Boxwalla February 2018 Book Box SPOILER #2
We have the second spoiler for the February Boxwalla Book box:
The second book that we have chosen for the February Book Box is German writer Jenny Erpenbeck’s ‘Go, Went, Gone’. This wonderful book was published towards the end of last year and is already an early contender for the best book of this year!
Erpenbeck’s writes with an almost Coetze-like restraint. But the collection of spare sentences form a prism of nuanced, complex thought, refracting philosophies, ideas, and ultimately a search to understand people who differ, on the surface, from you..
In case you missed the previous spoiler:
This February we travel to the South of India, to the coastal state of Kerala with the novel : ‘Legends of Khasak’ written by the great Malayalam writer O.V. Vijayan.
This novel is set in a rural fictional village called Khasak, a place where the air is thick with dragonflies, myth and magic and stories lurk in every corner, on every tongue. A novel that compels you to read and read and read. And fills you up with beauty, with wonder and, well, with a bit of sadness.
