Blurb :

Random Subterranean Mosaic: 2012–2018 is a kaleidoscope of random, yet mysteriously structured to a pattern, fiction, semi-autobiographical, and autobiographical pieces, covering poems, short-shorts, opinions, observations, and conversations.

Roy says: “All my life I have struggled to achieve an optimal lucidity in language and expression that is required to demystify the hidden self and selves and agendas. I hope I have achieved this in a large measure in this fifth book of mine!”

Review :

This book has been one of its kind read for me. A completely new genre I stepped in, which has almost every element of writing. It covers poetry, autobiographical anecdotes, quotes, short stories and what not. The writing style is superb, and the way thememroies have been depicted is really intricate. But it is somewhat difficult to understand in one go. I had to go through it twice to get the gist of the book.
A really new and unique contribution to the world of books. After the second read, it becomes clear that the author has freely penned down the thoughts, not necessarily in a particular sequence, but evidently like myriad. This justifies the title of the book!
Recommended to regular readers.
