Praise for CHANCE MEETINGS: A Collection of Stories
I’m so pleased to share with you a few lovely comments made about my short story collection, Chance Meetings: Stories About Cross-Cultural Karmic Collisions and Compassion!
Beautiful, lush, lyrical stories and rhythmic language transports and transforms — each story is an unforgettable journey.
Kathleen Shoop, IPPY Award-Winning Author of The Last Letter and After the Fog
A skilled practitioner, Madhu B. Wangu, writes from the marrow of her bones. In her collection, she conjures dream-like motifs of goodness, guidance, and the human condition. Her writing, infused with echoes of Hindu and Buddhist myths, is deeply satisfying and transformative.
Gwyn Cready, RITA Award Winning Author
Chance Meetings is an evocative and thought-provoking collection: A delicious blending of cultures, delicately rendered and rich with sensory detail.
Meredith Mileti, Author of Aftertaste
And here is the blurb for the book, to tempt you further:
Madhu B. Wangu eloquently draws from her own Indian-American heritage and examines the lives of ordinary people facing challenging circumstances — cruelty, prejudiced minds, twisted family relationships, unhappy marriages — and demonstrates how these situations transcend ethnicity and background as interactions with strangers force each character to look deep within themselves, often acknowledging painful truths and long-held secrets, in order to seize control of their own destinies and forge their own paths to independence and happiness.
The book will be published on April 7, in just a few days. But you can preorder now: order on Amazon. I hope you will enjoy the stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.
