“Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” -Khalil Gibran
The Angel’s Beauty Spots by K.R Meera is a collection of three novella’s translated from Malayalam by J.Devika. Through these provocative pages of fiction, Meera walks you through the realities of love we often fail to acknowledge. The Deepest Blue, Angel’s Beauty Spots and Forgetting Tree I… runs on a common thread of balancing love with what love isn’t romanticized for, instead it offers a take on the raw realities one has to deal with.
Though rooted in reality, the non-conventional narrative lends a voice to the female protagonists in three unique themes. They are independent, yet strings attached, strong, yet vulnerable. The ruminations they have forms the plot dealing with the dark reality of love. Through magic and metaphor, betrayal and violence, Meera weaves in what can be considered the edginess one have to deal with in love.
The Angel’s Beauty Spots lends a hand to step out of the frame to see the picture better. It speaks to the soul in a way which one wouldn’t want to imagine but resonates with the visceral feelings that rise out of the dark heart of love.
The latest work of fiction by @krmeera1, one of the country’s finest storytellers, #TheAngelsBeautySpots holds a mirror to the realities of love we refuse to acknowledge.
