Diddle is a series of absurd, impossible, but faintly connected stories about immigrants living in the USA that will serve to deconstruct the "American Dream" mythos. Somehow each story typifies the experience of life for outsiders in the US, coupled with the impossibility of absolute acculturation. The book comprises a dozen short stories, each generated out of a line from the old nursery rhyme, laced with double entendres, multiple meanings and overlaps. These tales, written by a poet with a rich touch of language, question the very notion of identity and belonging, instead presenting the amalgamated state that most people are forced to live in.
