First Annual #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop! -- Balaka Basu, and a Dylan Thomas Poem for Saint David's Day
elcome to the first Annual #AtoZChallenge Book Reviews, Tour, and Blog Hop! The final author in the blog hop on my blog is Balaka Basu! Golden Rainbow (2018; biography and memoir; a diverse book) " Golden Rainbow is an interesting collection of 26 memoirs written as short stories. These are not heroic tales but ordinary stories of ordinary people; nevertheless, they are thought-provoking. "Some of them will make you laugh out loud while others may make you cry. The stories are rich in emotion, empathy and compassion. They are deeply profound. Reading the short stories is like a visit to Kolkata and typical Bengali life. You will connect with so many characters from your own real life but with different names. The anecdotes are not just stories but also a smart commentary on the various aspects of society. Easy to read, they will directly appeal to anyone fond of short stories. This book is not just a one-time read. It gets better with each reading."
