Journal Entry 1 by wingPeoniowing from Porvoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Saturday, December 7, 2019
" "I feel a woman is most attractive when she surrenders to her man. She is incomplete without a man,” averred Kamala Das shortly before her death in May, 2009. One of the most controversial and celebrated Indian authors, she combined in her writings rare honesty and sensitivity, provocation and poignancy. The Kept Woman and Other Stories explores the man-woman relationship in all its dimensions. Deprived, depraved, mysterious, mystical and exalted, each character, culled from experience and observation, is an incisive study of love, lust and longing.

The last collection of writings that Kamala Das compiled herself before her death, The Kept Woman and Other Stories is a moving and compelling read."

Journal Entry 3 by wingkirjakkowing at Helsinki, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Saturday, February 22, 2020
I've never been a kept woman, the book is slim - which I am not either - and the writer is called Kamala ("awful" in Finnish), so the book will be given a chance.

Journal Entry 6 by wingsakirmowing at Turku, Varsinais-Suomi / Egentliga Finland Finland on Sunday, August 9, 2020
Took this home from Redi yesterday. The author is free to surrender to her man and feel incomplete without one, of course, but that alone tells me there's no reason to give this book a chance. It does get a chance to travel a bit, though.
