Two short stories with measureless impact. Both stories flanked by love. The premise of ‘pairs’ of short stories is original and unique, you understand the pairing as you read of the connection between the duo. Garg’s vision elevates both characters and narrative.
The Proposal – a couple pulling at your heartstrings, you have no idea the final outcome, quite a tender story. Love fully demonstrated.
Remembrance – a slow build up, smattering of clues before the reader is blindsided left with their mouth forming an O.
Garg’s talent is in dialog and characterization – clearly her characters are three dimensional, incandescent. Prosaic circumstances yet emotionally grueling. Her prose is absorbing, placidity with weightiness. Memorable and potent.
Two affecting marvelous short stories, anxious to read more from Garg, an authoress commanding a favor in style and characterization, powerful meaning hooking the reader with originality and uniqueness on all degrees.
