- The world is always in movement, wrote V.S. Naipaul.....Its an apt description for the themes and characters - the restless feet and wandering spirits - in Swapna and Ashis Gupta's co-written book of short stories, "The Irrelevance of Space". In settings ranging from Scandinavia to Canada, Eastern Europe, Iran, Cuba and the USA, the six stories here transcend geographical boundaries and trace the permeable borderland diverse emotional terrain of human relationships. Although differing greatly, the stories are each rooted in local settings, revealing the diversity of human experience around the globe...... a worthwhile and engaging read. - Jamal Ali, Alberta Views Magazine Link to review
