Three Barnyard Tales yKstore and it was such a serious delight to get to pick back up with dimple and karsh to see that almost too perfect first love fall apart the way it does and to see dimple adventure and recenter herself withinbetween people and worlds also because i always appreciate aa novel that includes the homos here be lesbians won t spoil a but lez discuss What the frock did I just read After than a decade we finally get a chance to revisit the life musings and viewfinder of Dimple Lala now 19 dating Karsh and attending NYU for photography She and Karsh are going to visit India together for Karsh s big DJ break in Bombay and Sangita s upcoming nuptials And that s about all that we think we know and will expect from this story But somehow everything derails Literally And not even the "changes and different experiences the characters go through "and different experiences the characters go through the amount of focus Hidier puts on poetic descriptions of pretty much anything ou can think of made it so difficult to get through most of it It was sparingly done in the first book Born Confused In this one it was like she just vomits poetry and alliterations all over And altoo Ouch I fear my skin is thinning Too long immersed in bittersweetness just one with the bitter like oversteeped tea No fault was found with the lyrical prose or the culture clash or dear sweet Dimple Karsh on the other hand was either recast or given a script that made me want to hit him in the head with a potato Visiting Bombay with her felt like returning to An Old Friend Only old friend only hear that she d suffered great loss and was only just beginning to reclaim herself her lifeIt is nearly four in the morning and I cannot confer a star rating on something while the covers are still warm Ms Hidier had been clearly been smoking that pure Himalayan ganja which the characters procure in Bombay during the process of writing this novel The kind that really gives If an Elephant Went to School you an overblown confidence inour ability to ponder deep philosophical uestions in subversive elouent waysAnyway I ve given it such a high rating because even though the majority of the novel was sentimentalcliche bullshit I think I do understand and relate to the sadness and dislocation at the heart of this novel I liked that the screaming uestion wasn t HELP ME I M BROWN but HELP ME I M A PERSON AND HOW DO YOU DO THATAlso I would have probably loved it if I had read it high. G adventures that take her from India to New York to London and back with a little luck and a lot of vision the journey home might prove just as magical as what ou left behind to make it. .
Antastic and too painful The Dimple I grew to love wasn t into random encounters with guys whose names she didn t knowwho were possibly married The Dimple I met in Born Confused would ve retreated into her family who were screwy but fundamentally good Karsh s world Fuck his world she was strong enough to hang out with people like Flip and Sangita Sangita Now she s a real winner oh my goodness without needing Mr Right Now Honestly it was about eight to ten ears between the books and I think Dimple should ve been aged up accordingly because it d have felt true but then Sangita s marriage would ve been a fait accompli On the other hand even that could ve been handled by showing that Sangita wasn t necessarily the good wife everyone expected and that Deepak was liberal about things ditto Sangita and Deepak as married but modern That would ve been compellingI liked Akasha Okay I d have liked to adopt Akasha But damn she was out of nowhere I think she tipped this into magical realism that and prose that I may be alone here verged on indigo I feel like Hidier got too lost in her vibe Or smoked something that felt great at the time Bursts of that prose in Born too lost in her vibe Or smoked something that felt great at the time Bursts of that prose in Born worked A book s "worth of it and I thought fuck it why d ou write a book Why not "of it and I thought fuck it why d ou write a book Why not album Linux Networking Cookbook you clearly grew to love Because she is a songwriter and a poet but when it comes to prose it can get overblown Beautiful But overblown I m pretty sure this is not where I want the story to end On the other hand I can t wait umpteenears for the next and neither can poor Dimple nineteen forever If there is to be another get er done and if not I have to wonder why it sputtered to an end where it did I feel sorry for Dimple Everyone around her found peace than she did Or maybe it s a peace I don t understand what she found I wasn t convinced hide spoiler There were parts of this book that I really connected to mostly the issues that arise with being bicultural I also loved the overarching themes of euality and love is love Some parts were a little too over the top and verbose for me Definitely a good read before traveling to India though tanuja desai hidier is the kind of writer whose language uses all the senses without ever feeling too heavy handed it s playful and inventive and it feels good in Marcus Garvey your mouth i didn t know this seuel to born confused was coming out until i saw it on a shelf in a boo. D home where she least expected it But a lot's gone on in theears that have followed And what happens if what FRIENDLY ENEMIES you thoughtou wanted wasn't what ou wanted after all As she learns durin. It was interesting to learn what had happened with Dimple and Karsh and their friends and loved ones However the story was overlong although the prose is often poetic and uite beautiful Tanuja Desai Hidier is a very gifted writer and if she ever wrote a book of poetry I d buy it in a second This one was just a little "DRAWN OUT FOR ME SOME BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS BUT "out for me Some beautiful moments but the was weighted down pretty heavily I had a hard time finishing it The writing is dense and lyrical I think this REALLY could have used a stronger editThough I love her voice and do get the cultural references it gets tedious at times and it takes too long to get to the well written climactic scenes That said I was freuently captivated by Hidier s w A passable read however all of the elements that made Born Confused that wonderful bildungsroman that it was were sadly missing from this seuel What I felt made the former were characters like her parents and Karsh Karsh I felt was an integral part of the first novel and he felt like an entirely different character in this seuel I understand what the author was trying to convey by having him feel adrift after his father s death but he was entirely changed from what he was in Born Confused And Dimple too Yes she s grown since being that American Born Confused Desi however the scenes with Cowboy just left me bored and feeling increasingly irritated with DimpleDesai Hidier still writes beautifully though ou can truly get lost in her writing There s a fluidity and melody in her words that many authors try hard to achieve but cannot uite graspAll in all an okay read but I ll stick to re reading Born Confused whenever I feel the urge to relive Dimple s life I think I m reacting instead of reviewing right now and that s okay Emotionally some books hit harder than others especially when And a Bottle of Rum you re invested in the first to the point where the second isview spoilerHaveou ever spun Crochet yarn Or tried In caseou were wondering spin one way Playhouse you getarn Spin the other ou get something back that resembles wool but isn t usable any It falls apart and ou can t make it part of the wool againDimple s world spun out the wrong way She didn t feel like herself Karsh didn t feel like himself and Desire and Deceive you know I missed Gwyn I know it s real to lose track of a person like Dimple and Gwyn grew apart but some realism is too real Too painful This was at once too The long anticipated seuel to Tanuja Desai Hidier's groundbreaking BORN CONFUSEDIn BORN CONFUSED Indian American just turned 17ear old Dimple Rohitbhai Lala found love friendship art an.
