Seasons of the Palm by Perumal Murugan— A Book Review
I looked at the the size of this book and thought “oh, I’m gonna finish it in 3 days,” but the book was not going to have that. The ambling, meandering pace set by Murugan forces you to take your time and to put the book down every few pages to reflect on what you’ve just read. This is a good thing; makes you think about how merciless the caste system is towards untouchables, towards children. A beautiful, deeply saddening, collection of anecdotes weaved into a larger story of a small life. 7.5/10.
