Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Novel A friend told me about this novel. I loved it! The characters reminded me of myself and of people I know. There are a few stories being told at once - the author does a great job of weaving them together and moving from character to character. I especially loved the author's use of language - truly beautiful.

Editorial Reviews

A propulsive, taut and sultry debut, 26 Knots is a lightspeed Romeo and Juliet, a billet doux to Montreal. Bindu Suresh writes with the shine and force of a guillotine carrying us swiftly through the entanglements of love." - Claudia Dey, author of Heartbreaker "A collection of connected tales set in Montreal, Canada, Bindu Suresh's 26 Knots is a buzzy, new novel-in-stories that you won't want to miss out on reading." - Bustle "Shakespearean in its execution, 26 Knots leaves you feeling the echoes of heartbreak and loneliness, long after you finish the last page." - THIS Magazine To call this novel a page-turner is an understatement Suresh's prose is sumptuous and lyrical. - Montreal Review of Books One of the most striking Canadian literary debuts of the year. - Montreal Gazette "
