Inside Shiva's Arms
Shiva's Arms is deceptively simple, an example of immigrant domestic fiction that is so much more. Using the intense distilled language of an accomplished poet, the author presents this story of a family in culture-shock through multiple points-of-view, recalling film's Rashomon Effect. The technique blends and overlaps the characters' experience until a portrait of the way that each of us is part of the other emerges. A compelling, innovative, uplifting piece of fiction.
