Description

Sweet Water & Other Country Stories contains eighteen of the best short stories of Vyankatesh Madgulkar, noted Marathi writer. The stories in this collection record extensive history and individual feeling of the characters vividly without ostentation, sentimentality or elaboration.

Madgulkar’s keen observation of country people and country phenomena, his admirable restraint in interpretation, directness of style and aptly concise, minimally ‘country’ language reveal why he was one among the four makers of the Marathi short story.
