I think her writing is beautiful. I can't think of another writer I'd like to write like more. I agree, though, that sometimes her stories are too obviously a clash between American and Indian cultures.


The first book ever which had made me cry.I empathized so much with the characters I forgot for a moment they are not real.

She's an enchanting writer. She can sweep you into a story just by her writing, which is rare.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
