Insects are Just Like You and Me Except Some of Them Have Wings
Fiction. South Asia Studies. "Not merely lyrical and strange, but also deadpan funny"--Miranda July. A centipede in a shoe, revelations in a shoebox, nosebleeds, exploding women, and a dead mouse named Miraculous populate this collection of thirty-five short stories from one of India's most original young writers. Kuzhali Manickavel was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, lived in various places around Canada, and moved to Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India when she was thirteen years old. Contrary to popular belief, she is not very much fond of insects.
