    One thought on “Yaraana: Gay Writing from India”

    1. Contemporary stories about homosexual relationships we're good reading it after Chocolate: And Other Writings on Male-male Desire was refreshing.

    2. An anthology with diverse range of stories from every walk of life. Most of the writers are from the Indian subcontinent, as are the settings of the stories. I wouldn't say I liked all the pieces in this anthology, but some of the stories and poems are deep, and evocative. Some are merely rambling, discursive, and some others incoherent. My interest in this book stemmed from the fact that this is a collection of gay writing, and this alone caused me to enjoy each of the pieces in this book.
