All Time Great Stories of Rabindranath Tagore
by Rabindranath Tagore

 Indiaclub.com Description

This short collection bring to you twenty five engaging stories from Sri Lanka’s best known story-tellers. The country’s simmering ethnic and political violence provides the backdrop to many of these narratives. Told with innate sensitivity to the turbulence and social complexities of their times, these stories bridge connections for a young nation torn by decades of strife.

Drawn from Sinhala, Tamil and English this anthology is a compelling read that brings out the distinctive flavour and rich diversity of Sri Lankan prose.
