Year 6, Book 74

74. The Artist of Disappearance by Anita Desai

I got a free ebook copy of this from NetGalley. I knew going into it that it was short stories, which I am usually not a fan of. I read it anyway because as I discovered later I was entirely confused and thought it was by an entirely different author. I had previously read a book by Kirin Desai that I really liked less for the plot but more for the language so I figured I might enjoy reading some short stories by her. Of course I wasn’t reading short stories by her at all, but by some other author sharing her last name. The book is composed of three short stories or novellas. They were fine, but nothing outstanding. Someone who actually likes short stories might appreciate the book more. It was definitely a quick read though. I give it 4 out of 10.
