It gives you more to chew on than to just melt in your mouth. For a self-taught artist, Parismita Singh can draw more good artwork than bad.

This book will take you along on a journey to some richly imagined, familiar yet strange lands. The narrative locus is a hotel at the end of the world, where there is all that a lonely traveller might seek -- shelter from the storm (please open links in a new tab), the promise of warm food, and an evening's company of fellow wayfarers.

This is a fable for set in today's North East. I have heard a lot of about it but today I got to read it. The presence of soldiers is disturbing but they have also been absorbed into the mythology of the place. Reminds me of Boccaccio's Decameron and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales but adapted to the North East. If you have an hour to spare while waiting, this is the book to read.
