A wonderful review from award winning author Preti Taneja of Should We Fall Behind

Review of Should We Fall Behind by award winning author Preti Taneja.

'Duggal writes about the devestation of vulnerable lives with all the hard-eyed clarity of WILLIAM TREVOR, and as much literary heart as ROHINTON MISTRY - SHOULD WE FALL BEHIND deeply inhabits its world but wears its craft so lightly - it is beautifully observed, suffused with inner-city melancholy and shot through with hope that can only come from random encounters, the small acts of generosity that help strangers to find affinity with each other even in the worst of times.'


'Exhilarating.' - The Sound Mirror reviewed in The Irish Times

There is a wonderful review in today's Irish Times of The Sound Mirror by Heidi James.

'...hence the giddy feeling one is reading a contemporary feminist novel composed by Sophocles’ sister.’

'It is exhilarating.'
