    One thought on “Engglishhh: Fictional Dispatches from a Hyperreal Nation”

    1. One needs to be under the influence of unaccountable doses of intoxication to write like this. The brutality of Altaf Tyrewala's depiction of Bombay is that I was laughing all along as I was reading. Either I imagined these stories in my head, or this guy is the gutsiest young Indian writer at work today.

    2. When HarperCollins releases a 211-pages hardcover book costing Rs 450 with a title such as "Engglishhh", you presume that the book would be surely a modern classic or something so epic that it would be remembered for a long time. After reading the book now, I can say that I enjoyed the short stories based on characters based in different class, cities, situations, circumstances etc. The tagline of the book says :Fictional Dispatches from a Hyperreal Nation". Author of the book is Altaf Tyrewala [...]

    3. Amazing and very underrated. Possibly, nobody in modern English writing captures the nuances of Mumbai as well as Altaf Tyrewala. And this book outdoes his previous prose. The best book read this year so far! Strongly recommended.
