Brink & Beyond a collection of short stories

Author Name: Supriya Saraswati | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

To anyone who has ever wondered if broken could be powerful and beautiful, the cover portrait depicts you, and everyone who, when at the brink of breaking, chose to heal. This is you – unbound, invaluable, whole.

In this collection of stories, walk along the journey of the characters and witness their distinctive ways of escaping and embracing the cracks within them.

Losing innocence to hunger. Being married to abuse. A gaping wound left by miscarriage.

“One thing I knew back then was that hunger does not starve with you. Hunger slowly eats you. In its rancidity the good, the right, the bad and the wrong corrode alike.”To the Elysian Fields

“Given the social stigma sewn in strongly with incidences of domestic violence, the victims suffer in the embrace of torture without a noise. Is it murder only when you kill a person? What is it when you kill a personality?”The Bird that Stayed Back 

“Somehow it is so much easier to spot people who have void in their lives. It shows up on them. He and I share the same void, only it does not show up on him as severely as it does on me.”By the Name of Faith

If you knew you could heal your cracks with something precious, would you still resist healing?

Supriya Saraswati

Supriya Saraswati is looking for a word for someone who converses in questions, so she could describe herself. She is not taking “annoying” for an answer.

Supriya spent her childhood on the campus of IIT Bombay. Seen here, she is at one of her favourite spots in the quaint, calm campus.

She obtained her doctoral degree from Heidelberg and went to Dallas for postdoctoral research. She currently works for a pharma company.

Writing affords her a space to purge, reel and brighten up her journey. She came up with the word “happimmer” – a blend of happy and immer (German for ‘forever’), to remind the struggles of life that they are sparring with a hopeful.

Brink & Beyond is her debut book, a collection of short stories.

She wishes all her readers to be “happimmers”!
