In an essay in this anthology, Khushwant Singh claims that he is not a nice man to know. Whatever the truth of that assertion, there is little question about his skill as a witty, eloquent and entertaining writer. This book collects the best of over three decades of the author's prose - including his finest journalistic pieces, short stories, translations, jokes, plays as well as excerpts from his non-fiction books and novels. A compelling re-reading not because it is memorable but because it is unforgettable.
