Chef by Jaspreet Singh

Such a pity that a book with so much potential is spoiled by an attempt to be arty. Why don’t the editors tell these authors that just telling the story well can carry as much meaning as trying to lace the book with symbols and surreal moments? Interesting characters, unusual historical background and location should have been enough, but no, we have to give the main character terminal cancer to make it more dramatic. As if the Kashmir situation isn’t dramatic enough. Anyway, still a good read but it could have been so much more. 63/100
