Kith and Kin (Chronicles of A Nair Clan)
Kith and Kin (Chronicles of A Nair Clan)
Description
About The Book

Wimpy men whimsical women, people trapped in their own time zones, cuckolding wives... Meet the Melekats. They are an inimitable lot!

These are slice-of-life stories about an old Nair family from south Malabar in Kerala. The Melekat mosaic includes Ammini Amma, the matriarch of the family, and her large brood of offspring and descen4ants. A wannabe journalist in search of the perfect story, a girl in search of a husband, a woman in search of a reason—any reason to leave her husband...each character arouses curiosity.

There is love, laughter, betrayal, hurt, anger, meetings, partings, and even a chatty ghost, in this fluid and engaging narrative.

 

About The Author

Sheila Kumar, ex-adwoman, journalist, travel writer, book editor, lives in Bangalore and writes about anything and everything that interests her. She has her short stories published in three anthologies.
