Overview: My Lawfully Wedded Husband

About the Book: My Lawfully Wedded Husband and Other Stories Beware the office ghost – or the seemingly boring husband who might just find a most macabre way of doing something different ..... Twelve spine-chilling stories from a writer whose sleight ofhand with black humour is hard to match. In A Brief Lesson inTrust, Geeti learns the hard way that the most reliable girl inschool is not always what she seems; in St. George and the Dragon,Mr George, the archetypal government clerk finds a fiendishlyclever way to outstmart his corrupt boss while The Howling Waves ofTranquebar takes us to this tiny Danish settlement of yore where aninnocuous-looking beer mug still has strange powers of destruction.These and other stories in this collection entertain, amuse –but always end with a twist in the tale that leaves a fewgoosebumps.

  1.  A Definite page-Turner 20 June, 2013 On
    I love short stories. And I love the ones which leave an impact, more. Madhulika Liddle's My Lawfully Wedded Husband and Other Stories, was one book which I loved more. Twelve stories,twelve flavours - but all garnished with some amount of dark humour.

    Liddle's characters are bold, colourful and stands out among the crowd. Be it the office ghost in Silent Fear, the inquisitive and concerned young couple neighbours to Number 63, the artfully crafty government clerk Mr.George in St.George and the Dragon or Helen the prostitute in Hourie, all these characters have been carefully painted and detailed to perfection. The imagery created in each of the narratives is so vivid, that you feel it rolling in front of your eyes.

    Few of the stories are slightly predictable and amateurish, but they get overpowered by the stronger and cleverer ones, which are more in number.

    All in all, this book is a page-turner and a perfect example of how simple words can be used to weave magic.

    This collection of tales from Liddle, would definitely grab a handsome 3.5/5 from me!
