Review

These circuses that sweep through the landscape is a collection of short stories, which depicts different levels of life circus. The stories are metaphorical and imaginative. A beetle collector who in a fit of anger derived from suspicion mistreats his wife. In an attempt to reduce his wife, meets an unexpected twist of life. Anshu, who was late for doing her assignment, after a fateful night, her life changes. A woman who sets out on an exorbitant shopping spree, gets lost in the mall. It's symbolism is commendable but towards the end the story became too dragging. The girl who lived Dean Martin, is the next story. I liked this one so much. Tejaswini has portrayed how the protagonist's obsessive admiration and love towards the singer affects her. A little girl who accidentally had something not meant for kids. The point is good but suspense was obvious. Well, I'm not going to tell you all about every stories. That's for you to read and understand.

With a crisp and tight narrative, author has proven her finesse in literary world. The stories and the backgrounds are variant and unique. No two stories are similar in anyway except the signature of the authoress. Not all the stories are equally brilliant. At some point the lack of variation in the narration makes the book monotonous.
The poetic musings of the stories are enchanting. The stories explore and elaborates the psyche of readers through the characters.

The book consists 9 main stories titled with different line and 9 sub-stories titled under "These circuses that sweep through the landscape". I would be frank and blunt, I skipped 2 main stories and 4 sub-story because I lost grip. I tried my best to finish them but I failed. So I decided to write the review and give justice to other stories.

Following are things that I liked about book:
- Comical part of "The Mall"
- Hidden romance between to ex from "Mili"
- Dark sides of characters from "Drinks at Seven"
- Mr. Ghosh and his hypothesis
- Mr. Poonawala's passion towards his profession

You can call me a mediocre reader but I was not able to gauge ending of few stories. Book lost it tempo at many places which have made me skip few pages.

But I think as a debut work, Tejaswini has done a splendid job. The main reason is character building. Even though it's collection of short stories, each story has given proper importance to the main character of that story, which is rare in short-stories.

An exemplary contribution in the world of words. A gift to the literature and the readers, who always out on fishing for something worthy. An innocent and commendable effort by the author. It is an artistic creation.

‘These circuses that sweep through the landscape’ is a collection of 10 beautiful short stories. The stories from magic world to the human race; from characterize to one incident to whole lifetime, however it a pack of ten different stories unrelated to each other.

A short story is a journey in a short pool of words. It is called to be a short story because it is characterized to a particular situation like the story “The Mall” in which a lady is out on a shopping discover that she is stuck in a glitzy mall and could not find its way out. But when you look at the story “Sandalwood”, it illustrates the journey of a girl to a women, who gave seventeen years of her life to her family and all her efforts are discarded in a blink.

The stories have all the components to capture your nerves and seize you at one place. The language is impeccable and thoroughgoing and the stories embody picturesque description.

An unputdownable. Story after story you find yourself intrigued in the book. Every story is unique and brainy in its own way. One of the finest read of the year.

I have always loved short stories and this is why am in a lookout always for short story collections. “These Circuses that Sweep Through the Landscape” is collection of ten short stories each one dealing with a strong human emotions and psychology. All the stories are highly engaging with a strong ability to connect with the readers. Every story is unique in its own way and intrigues the reader with wonderful language and vivid imagery. The best part of the book is that at no place you feel bored or the stories seem to be dragging. I hate unnecessary descriptions and stretchy stories that distract the readers from the main theme. And this book just masters the art to convey everything in the form of Clear, crisp, and concise writing.

I like reading books that have the capacity to involve the readers and provoke their imagination. And this book did exactly this to me.

All the ten stories in “These Circuses That Sweep Through the Landscapes” is different from the other and take up an interesting subject. So in one book itself, we go from Star Trek to the mall to teacher-student and servant-master relationships and so on. In short, the topics touched varied emotions and were versatile offering something for every taste. The beauty of the book lies in the care for detail.

Talking about the cover of the book, it was better or should I say impressive in the paperback format. In my opinion, the online version did not succeed in catching my attention. It seemed a little bland and failed to stand out among the rest.

All in all, “These Circuses That Sweep Through The Landscape” is a captivating read and a sure page turner. Since there are not many pages in the book, it can be finished in a single setting during a weekend afternoon. Recommended to all short story lovers and those who like to read emotional and intense reads.
