We Regret To Inform You That Your Condolences Cannot Be Accepted This Time by V.V. Ganeshananthan

4 July, 2010

is a short story by one of my favourite writers which you can read here. V.V. Ganeshananthan is the author of Love Marriage, a debut novel that was beautifully written and had such depth and understanding of what was happening in Sri Lanka during the ethnic conflict. This is another short piece that will stun you with its power. I like the way that she writes her pieces without drowning you in sentimentality. It’s short, sharp and brutal.

    Short, sharp and brutal sounds excellent. I’m rather tired of long, dull and sappy found in so many books.
