I’m only a few stories in with Chaya Bhuvaneswar’s new story collection White Dancing Elephants, but I’m already hooked. The titular story, written directly to an unborn child, is about an Indian woman navigating London in the immediate aftermath of a miscarriage. The second story, “The Story of the Woman Who Fell in Love with Death,” is about a boy coping with the disappearance of his sister by reading a storybook in a New York Starbucks. Expertly hopping between worlds and decades, Bhuvaneswar chronicles grim terrain in a remarkably brief number of words. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the book.
