About The Book
Life is unexpected in every sense. We cannot choose or predict the paths in our lives, and that is what makes it exciting. Why So Twisted? is an anthology of 12 contemporary short stories that carry a simple and enjoyable theme, for which all have an innate ability to excite and surprise the reader with an unexpected twist towards the end.
This anthology features the already popular story, Flirting in which a woman nonchalantly flirts with many men. While The Pursuit follows a man, who is destined to become a top photographer, Crossing The Line introduces you to the internal struggle of a married man who is about to hook up.
But nothing is as straight as it looks because it's not always about the first impression!
These short stories are quick reads. Sometimes, it's the protagonist's clever mind, at times, it's his kind heart. Otherwise, it's the heartless destiny, or occasionally, it's the writing style too, which brings the fascinating metamorphosis of the plot and will lead you to ask the question, Why So Twisted?
About The Author
'So, tell me about yourself.' said he.
'Who the fu.. Who are you?' I asked.
'Your alter ego,' said he, 'bro.'
'Phew! Isn't it lame to be interviewed by your own voice inside the head?' I asked.
'Hell ya; but not lamer than writing your own author bio in the third person,' he grunted, 'now, quickly tell me about yourself.'
'Well, on Tuesdays and Fridays I am suicidal but on Mondays and Saturdays I believe that I can beat the Lannisters.'
'Psst. By quietly mentioning GoT you won't look cool. Tell me something substantial for the readers to know more about you, we are running out of space.'
'Okay,' said I, 'I am an aspiring artist trapped inside an engineer's body. I belong to Hubli, Karnataka. I have been previously published by Penguin India and Story Mirror (online). Readers can read the sample stories of this book on http://vinayakwrites.in/. Let the journey begin.'
