The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter is a memoir by author Shilpa Raj scheduled to be released worldwide on 28th of July 2017. This book is on our reading list for the month and we will be finishing the book before it releases so that we can post the review of this anticipated memoir as early as possible. The initial round of reading seems to reassure me (as an individual reader) that the renowned book critics of India as well as abroad, such as Kirkus, are true when they say that the book contains many other things than a mere recollection of Shilpa Raj’s life until now! In spite of being a debutant, Shilpa has wonderfully made use of the literary devices in her memoir The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter. For instance, she speaks about feminism through her grandmother and speaks for the people of the lower sections of Indian society through her father…
The work by Shilpa is awaited among the literary enthusiasts and conscious readers because she is not only the first woman from her family to have seen the gates of college but she is also the first woman ever from the ‘lower sections of society’ to have come up with a memoir. We do have writers, and women writers as well, from the Dalit backgrounds and they write for their class. However, Shilpa’s case is different. She does not only write in The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter, she speaks to you directly!
The book certainly becomes a debut worth made by the author. You must have read the debut works which cater the interest of different sections of readers just to become popular. Shilpa Raj, on the other hand, has decided to take up the issue right away! She has decided to speak up against the practices which are bad; the customs which are no longer valid; the roles which should not be dodged upon someone and the divisive line which should no longer be there…
The good thing about The Elephant Chaser’s Daughter is that you can order your copy and may get it well before the book releases officially! Just go the link below and order your copy now and make sure you don’t miss an important book which is not only different than most others but also a MUST READ in all the possible ways! Happy reading guys! I will be reviewing the book very soon.
