Reviews

The word "dazzling" is more often used than deserved in criticism but this is truly a dazzling, not to mention riotously funny and savagely memorable book * Irish Times * Original, surprising and visceral * Psychologies * Stories that are savagely funny, stories that haunt and sear and stun, stories so original they defy categorization above all, stories generously laden with sheer reading pleasure: I Am an Executioner is a brilliant and spellbinding collection * Manil Suri * A compulsive and infectious narrative * International Herald Tribune * I Am an Executioner gets the pulse racing from word one. I love Rajesh because his last name is even more impossible than my own, and because he has redefined the American short story for me. Bravo! -- Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story In this debut collection, original, quirky and written with panache, Raj Parameswaran explores troubled lives - both human and animal - with compassion and humour. Readers will remember these unusual stories for a long time. -- Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author of Palace of Illusions Wonderful stories - like small, deft carnivals entering our desert cities and cranky towns to, for a while, muster us into feeling, resolution, and happiness, before they go on their way. We can't help but be grateful for them. -- Charlie Smith, author of Word Comix: Poems
