    A Thoughtful Piece of Fiction

    A thoughtful piece of fiction. The story revolves around the main character who is the husband and father of a small, modern Indian nuclear family.

    An unconventional and thought provoking book...

    What is Existentialism?
    Why would anyone base his novel on it?
    Whats so great about it that anyone would consider making it the core of their book?

    All these and more questions I faced when I took up "Tall Man Small Shadow" by Vipin Behari Goyal for reading.
    Well first of all, I hadn't heard the term "existentialism" before I came across this book and that's one reason why the book appealed to me. The other being the cover where a tall man standing projects a small shadow of a woman. Pretty ...

    Breath of fresh air.

    What I loved about the book is how author has used a surreal concept of 'falling in love with a shadow' in a typical Indian setting. Very different & symbolic. Also the use of language is simple and classy.. one sentence in every page is like a quotation..All in all good story line,multiple angles, multiple interpretations, good book!
