Two charred crows, a swatted spider and guilt weighing heavily on the conscience. The signs are evident and Nalini knows that. She needs to tell the story now… So what if it contains an ugly secret. She knows that life, otherwise, won’t ease its strong, claustrophobic clasp.
Coming after a hiatus of ten years, there’s excitement in four generations of family – and friends – spread across the globe. The old storyteller is finally telling a tale. Many are ready to converge on to the village of Govindapuram. Those who grew up on her stories can’t wait to hear another from her. Others who haven’t heard her can’t understand the strange excitement: who’s ever heard of taking leave and crossing seven seas just to listen to a story!
But no one is aware that this is going to be unlike the thousands of stories she had narrated over eight decades. It would be unlike the therapeutic story that saved cousin Vaibhavi’s life, the prophetic story regarding Vaidehi’s marriage or the climax of an incomplete story she told the travelling Italian who had traversed half the planet to listen to that small part.
Nalini often wonders if the stories are mere reflections of life as everyone believes or is it the other way round?
Weaving many stories within the main story, The Spinner of the Twisted Tale is a peep into the enchanting world of a storyteller. Part real, part surreal, it is a story to not just read, but also marvel at and cherish
