"[Boys Will Be Boys
] is best read, as Suleri signalled in her earlier book Meatless Days
, as a procession of 'little tales': honed into near-perfection by the story-teller's art, haunted by the elegance of Urdu and English poets. Meatless Days
has a singular position in the South Asian canon. Boys Will Be Boys
, echoing it after a wait of fifteen years, is, if anything, better still."
