Description

Palash Krishna Mehrotra writes about prostitutes, cross dressers, murderers, drug addicts, students and stalkers, portraying their perversions and vulnerabilities with equal insight, taking us deep into the dark and seamy soul of India.

Set in the murky underbelly of big cities and small towns, slums and dotcoms, college hostels and rented rooms, Eunuch Park: Fifteen Stories of Love and Destruction is a collection like no other. Gritty, grim and depraved, these are candid vignettes of an India most of us are afraid to acknowledge.


COMMENTS

‘Palash Krishna Mehrotra takes us for a walk on the wild side to dark places that few of us would dare to explore alone. In turns audacious, grotesque, and unexpectedly tender, he achieves, in his tautly structured fictions, what acclaimed novelists often fall to master. The most Exciting south Asian debut in Years’.
-AAMER HUSSEIN

‘Palash Mehrotra is a short story writer of great Natural gifts, never devoid of verve and energy and delight however bleak or Unhappy his subject matter. Traumatic though his terrain often is, Mehrotra’s real theme is the indefatigable impulse towards life and transformation. This makes his best stories-Among the best I’ve read in a long time-At once cauterizing and curiously uplifting’.
-AMIT CHAUDHURI
