'Remarkably well-written. Nair's evocative prose, felt images and cultural observations clearly demonstrate her talent as a very gifted writer' ?Indian Review of Books When it was first published in 1997, Satyr of the Subway consisted of twelve stories, each worked around a dramatically different situation ranging from the mundane to the bizarre. This revised edition includes three new stories and incorporates occasional alterations to text, some marginal, some significant, where the writer has revisited her characters or situations long after she first created them. The result is a fascinating collection of stories that traverse the entire gamut of human emotion, penetrating in their insight into male?female relationships and seriously funny in their take on the futility of expectations?from life or from lovers. 'The stories are powerful, gritty and evoke a thousand images' ?Midday 'A born story-teller' ?Times of India 'Nair's work is suffused with metaphor, myth and montages of life. The book reads like a poem in parts, rich with rhyme, rhythm and alliteration. It is impolite, yet hard to ignore' ? Indian Express 'Nair's short fiction presents a writer intoxicated by the manifold power of the word . . . There is no coyness here . . . This is unembarrassed writing by a woman only secondarily concerned with her gender and like. She writes in a way that hasn't been attempted very often by Indian women' ?Gentleman 'Ever so often, you experience this urge to widen your eyes at a particular choice of words or a description. Or, you want to pause, reflect and get back to reading' ?Femina
