Neat, intriguing, poetic, fun and more

Inklings by Aparna Warrier is a neat, short collection of neat, short stories (flash fiction), ideal for drinking in with a coffee, or reading in place of that poetry book you’ve misplaced. Mini-mysteries tingle on the palette, delicate sensuality amuses, and a lovely rendition of childhood strikes cords of sympathy in the subconscious. The twelve stories range from a few short lines—the poetic, intriguing, unsettling images of So What for example—to a few short pages—Venus or Intoxicated by Impossibility—which quickly draw the reader into the mystery of new characters. Language is poetic with occasional, forgivable, lapses, and the whole is like an enjoyable tray of snacks—spiced, sweetened, tinged with curiosity and the meaning of life.
Of all the stories, my three favorites are Cheeky for its innocent sensuality and pleasingly portrayal of cubicle life, Greenie for that perfectly honest and real little third-grader, and Always for the tears of a guitar. And then there’s the Revolt of the Coconut Trees… My four favorites… Ah well. They’re all good.
 
Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
