Gaurav Monga’s Family Matters is a set of miniatures laced with quiet absurdism and melancholy, the impossible and the all-too-real fusing together with a curious blend of sophistication and simplicity. These are stories that touch on the intricacies and sometime troubles of family life through a quietly unique literary lens.
