An absorbing book of poems and short stories that various readers describe as "hypnotic" and "brilliant." Only a psychologist can weave so many emotions into a single piece of work that goes from the shock of a O'Henryesque tale to the lilting poetry of a desert song to the thrill of a “detective” story.

Dr. Chatterjee, a clinical psychologist by day, serves up a delectable collection of short stories and poems in this collection. The poems are mostly abstract and as such, lends themselves to various emotions and states of mind. The short stories are in-depth, yet alluring, character studies. 'The Rock' a short-short story in this collection is a great interpretive piece akin to some of the poems here. Pick up this book if you are fascinated by our minds and behavior but even if you are not, pick up this book for a surprising take on the mundane.
This book leaves you with a mixture of emotions and makes you want to read it again and again. The poems seamlessly flow with the short stories, and create a sort of vortex of characters, landscapes and drama that will leave you begging for more. I expect this writer to go places!!! Absolutely loved the book................
