Description

An absorbing view of one of the most fertile literary landscapes in the world.

In this unparalleled collection of short stories, The Harpercollins Book of New Indian fiction presents an absorbing view of one of the most fertile literary landscapes in the world. Traversing continents and orbits, styles and themes, in rich, original and frequently surprising ways, the stories testify to the range and depth of Indian writing in English. Variously lyric, satiric, tragic and fantastic, they are unified in their vigour and humanity.

The anthology features a rich assortment of voices from both new authors and established names including Abraham Verghese, Manju Kapur, Githa Hariharan and Amitava Kumar.

With an insightful introduction by Khushwant Singh, one of India's for4emost literary personalities, this is the definitive survey of a lively modern scene.
