Editorial reviews (3 reviews)

In many ways an accomplished novelist, Mahajan occasionally drives his penchant for arresting imagery off a cliff, so that instead of being held by the tone or content of a scene, the reader ends up preoccupied with whether it is good or bad for a nose to be “a beautiful chorus of tiny pores”, or in any way unusual that a French chateau is “stony and hard skinned”.

The Association of Small Bombs is a book that expertly examines pain. It pulses with awareness, collectivism, and feeling.

This novel is generous without prejudice, which feels at once subversive and refreshing.
