The Round up 2021 by SheThePeopleTV booklist compiled by Archana Pai Kulkarni includes Bombay Hangovers.
Wonderful to share space with fascinating authors of fiction and poetry. Am I over the moon?!
“This is the first collection of short stories from an accomplished poet. Rochelle Potkar, who grew up in Kalyan on the edges of Bombay, demonstrates her intimate connect to the city’s denizens with an easy verve. From the bylanes of Kamathipura to the Ambarnath fast local, from the hopeful textile mill employee of 1980s’ Bombay to the “humid passion” with which Flora Fountain’s second-hand booksellers operate, places and people are brought alive with Potkar’s skilful keyboard strokes. The plots serve as the canvas on which she paints the metropolis’ various hues, taking you close to the sights, sounds, smells and sweat levels unique to Bombay.”
