The arithmetic of breasts and other stories..
Rochelle Potkar is a blogger, a fiction writer, a poet and more. She has been writing stories across various genres for the past 8 years. The Arithmetic of Breasts & Other Stories was nominated for the Digital Book of the Year Award 2014 by Publishing Next, Goa. Does it work? Let’s check it out.
The blurb goes like this –
A cluster of 7½ literary short stories presenting the romantic-sexual facets of: Narain who lusts for Munika, Old Jaganlal who wants a favour from young Dia, Jackie who is in love with Nic, a surgeon who is changing more than a patient’s hairline, nose, lip, and chin, Shonali and Neel who are realizing that infidelity might not be such an easy thing, a woman who walks the tight rope between tradition and sexual exploitation, and Sunil who meets the woman of his desires through an adult dating site. Through these stories, Rochelle Potkar explores the intensely personal ‘unrelationship’ that exists alongside its conventional and socially articulate twin, the relationship.
