Life Happens and Death Too
Aug. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- East meets West in the trans-cultural poetry written by Latika Mangrulkar. Her stories happen on multiple levels, blending Western realities with the echoes of Indian sensibilities, creating a distinctive rhythm.

Life Happens, and Death Too is her second collection of stories and poems that focus on issues of trans-national identity. The men and women who inhabit these thematically connected works belong to different generations. As they confront universal human dilemmas, they try to maintain their balance.

Several of these tales ripple with undercurrents of Indian mythology, as they move across urban, suburban, local, and trans-national landscapes. Life Happens, and we see that death does too, as these characters experience tragic, comic, and even surreal moments.

LIFE HAPPENS, AND DEATH TOO (ISBN: 978-1-60976-840-9) is available for $13.50 and can be ordered through the publisher’s website: or at or
