Description

My Husband’s Mysterious Mistress is a collection of short story by Willy Goes — a writer proficient both in Konkani and English. He uses his keen sense of observation to formulate interesting stories.

In “The Valentine Day Ball” , the author unravels the irony that the opportunity of wooing love is undone by the burden of inhibition. But, all is well that ends well. It is a real reflection of the author’s positive outlook in life. In his fiction you will find nostalgic facts too as he mentions names of popular bands of Goa.

An erring school student is pulled up by an upright teacher only to see the mirror in “The Good and The Bad”. Sashi, the ice-fruit seller doles out sane advice besides being an indicator of time by his arrival. Interestingly, the incident happens in the background of an Indo-Pak war.

Two college mates turn colleagues in an advertising agency in ‘Win Win’. The elder one carries his egoistic stance of superiority based on just seniority. The junior takes him on but offers a truce as well. Unlike the real world, Willy’s tale turns too easy for a resolution. The conflict is over before it has started.

These stories feature distinct characters which bring with them the flavour, culture and ambience of Goa.
