Satyr Of The Subway - A Novel by Anita Nair


Reviews for Satyr of the Subway

Anita Nair's first offering has the incandesence of a born story-teller

- Times of India

The stories are powerful, gritty and evoke a thousand images

- Midday

Nair's work is suffused with metaphor, myth and montages of life. The book reads like a poem in parts, rich with rhyme, rhythm and alliteration. It is impolite, yet hard to ignore.

- Indian Express

An Ambitious attempt

- India Today

Ever so often, you experience this urge to widen your eyes at a particular choice of words or a description. Or, you want to pause, reflect and get back to reading.

- Femina

Nair's short fiction presents a writer intoxicated by the manifold power of the word...There is no coyness here, no Shoba De patented steam. This is unembarrassed writing by a woman only secondarily concerned with her gender and like. She writes in a way that hasn't been attempted very often by Indian women.

- Gentleman

Remarkably well-written. Nair's evocative prose, felt images and cultural observations clearly demonstrate her talent as a very gifted writer.
