Book review: Keeping Lastly, by B Mamatha

Keeping LastlyKeeping Lastly by B. Mamatha

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Keeping Lastly is one of those rare works that takes a book beyond mere entertainment and turns it into an art form. The intertwined stories of Sen and her mother, Lastly, provide the framework on which Mamatha builds a captivating story with haunting, poetic, and richly detailed prose. The island on which Sen lives is the source for a fascinating cast of secondary characters, each drawn with careful attention to detail.

Read this book if you enjoy literary fiction in any form, and if you want a completely immersive experience. I look forward to reading Mamatha's next book.
