Bradley Winterton reviews ThunkBook One in the Taipei Times

Shipbreaking

Some very kind words for H.V. Chao’s story “The Scene” from reviewer Bradley Winterton in The Taipei Times:

My prize for best entry overall goes to H.V. Chao’s “The Scene.” This evocation of fashionable beach life on the coast west of Ahmedabad in the Indian state of Gujarat, has enormous reserves of irony and observation.Other items may have ambition without achievement, but Chao has both. He will please the general reader and the connoisseur equally. He boasts literary sophistication, in other words, while nowhere sacrificing total accessibility. This bright vignette deserves a prominent place in his forthcoming collection.

The story is available in the inaugural issue of ThunkBook.
