Bangalore, (May 07, 2020), Mumblings from the Depth by Jithu Thomas is a collection of twenty-one short stories that in particular shed light on the other side of the human heart that prefer to remain in shade and silence for some dark yet gloomy reasons. The book is poignant in covering the unspoken topics from our lives, like having chosen a wrong dream and aspiration, unable to cope up with someone’s loss, bereavement of love, burden of expectations, despair and destitution during wars, solitude, absence of camaraderie in life, and so on. As a matter of fact, stories pertaining to loss are at the center of the book, but at the same time it doesn’t forget to handle grim circumstances with an exquisite tenderness. Published by Notion Press, the book is available in both formats Kindle and Paperback.
“Thomas’ style is elegant with carefully crafted sentences and precision in vocabulary. All the stories are bliss to read if one is a lover of short story genre. The themes are sometimes morbid and full of evident pain, but the authorial voice always comes with empathy and compassion.” — Kevein Books and Reviews
About the Author:
Born to simple and happy parents hailing from Kerala, Jithu Biji Thomas, an MBA graduate, spends most of his time thinking about life and other philosophical matters revolving around him. He yearns to find out ways that would help one to live out of the box — a box that the society has setup as a role model. He prefers to lead his life away from the rat race and is always found in the midst of good old country songs, great food and lots of tattered copies of books in some lonely green nook. He has been maintaining a blog for so many years where he scribbles down his mumblings. The blog is aptly named after the character of the blogger — living within the blog. This is his first book.
