Almost everybody in the publishing industry from publishers to agents to writers assure me that short stories do not sell unless from a celebrity pen and are therefore unpublishable.

Now coming to Vikram Karve, a familiar name to those who have been following his blogs on Sulekha. His characters are real life and well etched.

The twenty seven stories traverse familiar ground, invoking in the reader feelings as diverse as joy, pathos and at times amusement. But there is a problem. After a while, the emotions get repetitive.


That does not mean that the book is not an enjoyable read. I loved some of the stories.

Some stories do not work that well Every dog has his day is corny, Electrophoresis is plain silly but none of them can be called bad.
