"The method of Shielding Her Modesty is classically logistical: conflicts and classifications as well as syntheses (fated to fail) are governed by rigorous laws of antecedent and consequent, causal or associative. Finally, the texts are elemental: similar (but far from identical) characters act and react in analogous ways to cognate situations; the resulting array of tightly integrated patterns creates a dystopia of in-betweenness.'

- From a review of Sita Bhaskar's Shielding Her Modesty in The Virginia Quarterly Review.
(Somewhat more accessible reviews here and here.)


  • That really is "huh" worthy! How did that review even make it past the editors of the quarterly?
