Lyrical and imaginative, ‘Afterlife: Ghost Stories from Goa’ marks the arrival of a fresh new talent on the literary scene. Goa. The Fonseca family is gathered in Savio’s house on the eve of his seventy-fifth birthday. It starts raining heavily, the electricity fails, and in the darkness, family members start narrating their encounters with the supernatural. As the night advances, many stories – deeply unsettling, for they are all connected to the Fonseca name – come humbling out. An ominous bird visits the family matriarch on her deathbed, a young boy is possessed by an older man’s spirit, and a deceased uncle sends an urgent message from beyond the grave. Startling family secrets are revealed, as is an ancient curse that forever binds the family.
