Review: Bodies in Motion: Stories

Bodies in Motion: Stories
Bodies in Motion: Stories by Mary Anne Mohanraj
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beautiful sensuous read. We get small tastes of life of several generations of Tamil families. They are small, but intense tastes: love, passion, heartache and drama revealed in the burning taste of curries. Also, I loved that there were several settings in Hyde Park, one of my favorite places in the world.

There were times when I had to refer to the genealogy chart in the front of the book, because the names and people blurred together and I couldn’t tell who was the daughter of who. But I loved the stories, and loved to see who sought saftey in the marrying/baby culture, who broke out, who married outside their race, who did not married at all. My favorite were both of Mangai’s stories.

Now I’m hungry for curry.
