Feedback : Once again, what are we to make of the term "whore-wolf," a construction in English that doesn't at all fit the mother's tongue. Could she possibly say that, this thing that has a reference to were-wolf. I don't think so. This is asking too much of the reader - asking him to celebrate the rural sub-continental setting, and yet be lenient with such lapses into Western lingo that has no place here.

There seems to be a conflict here between writing a good story in some innovative English AND just writing a good story. The first side wins, mostly.

The only success the author had was with the Guvmint.
