    Meatless Days PDF/EPUB Ø Kindle Edition meatless epub, days epub, Meatless Days PDFEPUBReading South Asian authors who write in English is a necessarily painful experience because both you and they know the audience being addressed And that affects content and message leaving you depressed and hopeless beyond belief This is the only South Asian author I've ever read with the exception of Arundhati Roy who doesn't do that If this book wasn't so damn hard to find I'd hand out copies of it to everyone I know

    Meatless Days PDF/EPUB Ø Kindle Edition meatless epub, days epub, Meatless Days PDFEPUBFor the right reader this memoir really a collection of loosely linked essays could be a delight but I'm not that reader Suleri's chapters are meandering ruminations on her relatives their diaspora from Pakistan their domestic successes and tragedies I'd seen the book recommended as a perceptive and touching account from the perspective of a woman of growing up in Pakistan in the 1960s and 1970s Some images and turns of phrase are surprising and lovely Unfortunately Suleri's baroue writing style is uneven Here's an example selected nearly at randomIn our early years those mo

    Meatless Days PDF/EPUB Ø Kindle Edition meatless epub, days epub, Meatless Days PDFEPUBThe book is a melancholic memoir about Suleri's family from when she lived with them in Pakistan to present Each chapter profiles a different person in the family with one or two extra chapters about important friends in her lifeMy main issue with the book is that many of Suleri's metaphors are nearly impossible to understand Perhaps I have such different points of reference but there were some sentences I read over and over to no avail My best guess is that many things have meanings for Suleri that are not universalSomeone who was a double major in philosophy and literature might fare better than I didThat being said the chapter on Ifat wow Ifat is Suleri's older sister and Suleri captures the emotions between two close sisters amazingly well I don't know if I have ever read something so close to my own experience and I would recommend the chapter to anyone in a close sister sister relationship
