Survivors. Readers who love finely written prose should consider Karan Mahajan’s novel titled, The Association of Small Bombs. Mahajan draws close attention to a car bomb in New Delhi in 1996 and explores with precision the damage to survivors, including the individuals who were injured but survived the blast, the family of the victims who were killed, those responsible for the bombing, and society overall. All these survivors bear scars. Read this novel for the fine writing, then ponder what Mahajan has to say to us about living in our complicated and conflicted world.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
