Description

A superb collection of fiction from one of India's greatest living writers, this book brings together for the first time all four of Vijayan's books - 3 novels and twenty-one short stories- translated into English.

O V Vijayan is one of the most brilliant and original of the contemporary Indian authors. His fiction, written in Malayalam, is complex and poetic, a sumptuous blend of myth, dark humor, eroticism, mystical insights and a uniquely Indian brand of magic realism.

The collection includes his much-acclaimed first novel The Legends of Khasak, the controversial political allegory The Saga of Dharamapuri, and award-winning novel The infinity of Grace. The final section of this volume comprises 2w1 short stories which include classics such as After the Hanging, Oil, Wind Flowers etc. Together, they bear testimony to Vijayan's skills as an unusually innovative and evocative writer of romances, parables and tales of the supernatural.

COMMENTS:

A definitive collection, Selected Fiction is like a good piece of halwa. You'll never want it to end. And by the time you're through with it you will be a member of the Vijayan fan club. - - The Week
