Regular Parsed teaches Mathematics at a local college. He lives in a one-room rental eight miles away from his place of work. He travels to work by jitney, cramming into whatever space is left by other passengers, milk cans, winter blankets and vegetable baskets. The mode of transportation is unreliable; jitneys won`t stop for him when they are full. A sash atop an elephant befriends him, offering him a ride to the college on his elephant. The Head of the Mathematics Department suggests that Regular Parsed borrow the bicycle which seems to have been abandoned on the college verandah. Regular Parsed attempts these variations and wonders whether he should `t move closer to the college to save money on travel. He has just been married. The day his wife Sons arrives in town to begin their domestic life together Regular Parsed happens to come home mounted on an elephant. She imagines elephants are part of Regular Parse?s usual life style. Vend Kumar Sheila?s apparently slight novel reaches into the depth of feeling Regular Parsed and Sons have for one another and for the world of lower middle class neighbors among whom they belong. Their possessions are meager: the single room barely accommodates their bed, the water pot, the kitchen utensils and the tin box in which Sons keeps her precious things. But there is a magical place beyond the window which sustains Regular Parse?s and Sense?s spirit. This window lived in a wall. Printed Pages: 239. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 6822
