About the Book: Body and Blood: Stories on Breaking the Ten Commandments

Each story in this first-of-its-kind collection takes you into a realm where people are prompted by love, desire, jealousy, hatred and, at times, a strange compassion, to throw out the old, conventional rules, and make their own. The title story, 'Body and Blood, is a macabre revelation of how far one can go when one loves someone before all others, even God; in 'Honour. Or Not, a young girl abused by her father since the age of thirteen finds a shockingly unexpected way of 'honouring him when he dies. In a lighter vein, the protagonist in 'Sunday Snow Job asserts that working girls have to work, even on the Holy Sabbath, while Gomes in 'Heart of Gold finds it is possible to covet your neighbours wife and get rich too. 'Wakulla raises the question: can stealing be an act of compassion, and not a sin? In 'Fall, Srinivas discovers that one can make love to ones best friends wife without actually committing adultery. And coveting your neighbours goods is fine—as long as they are the right ones, as 'Elegy in a Churchyard, the tenth story in this rivetting collection, teaches us. Written with panache and by turns erotic, tongue-in-cheek and shocking, this is a collection of noir and black humour at its best.Each story in this first-of-its-kind collection takes you into a realm where people are prompted by love, desire, jealousy, hatred and, at times, a strange compassion, to throw out the old, conventional rules, and make their own.
