Stories connected by both a common theme and recurring characters in some five stories in total He should us an India where the wealthy can live down the block from the slums though the slums are hidden behind a sea wall Where people are trying to better their lives grabbing at chances for either themselves or their children The second story is by far the easiest at least emotionally to read A young man return from America for a month with plans to write a regional cookbook of recipes from his Homeland While there he makes friend with the cook a woman who he find our PT after visiting her village that cooks for multiple families sending most of the money home so that a nephew can go to college in America and better himself and his family The third is the hardest to read a man finds a bear cub and decides to train it so that he can take it on the road and make money for his family and his brothers family This is a graphic and abusive depiction of what it takes to make the bear obedient I skimmed much of this in fact almost put the book down but this man can write his words so impactful and I continued on The desperation of this man trying to do anything to make money to rise above himself by whatever means was emotionally stirring Things do not go as well as planned but the man feels free on the roadThis author does not spare the reader the utter hopelessness so many of these people feel Food is a key theme either the cooking of it where there is plenty or the lack of it the desperation to feed a family with no money no resources Lack of education and wanting to better oneself in one story a man who takes his wife to the hospital but cannot read feels a hopelessness that is searing when he cannot read the signs telling him where to go The last story is all one sentence and relates back to the first This is a magnificent collection albeit one that is hard emotionally to read Yet so often these are the stories that stick with the reader make the greatest impression For me this one did and willARC from Edelweiss
