Author: Githa Hariharan
ISBN/UPC (if available): 0140233393
This striking collection of 20 stories demonstrate the remarkable range of one of India's most promising young writers.
Sometimes comic- yet tinged with sadness - as in the The Remains of the Feast where an old woman near the end of her life suddenly feels the urge to sample all the food she has been forbidden; sometimes moving as in The Reprieve and always executed with a precision of style and magical imagery, these stories never fail to surprise and delight.
Gita Hariharan is an author to watch out for, she going places. THE ECONOMIC TIMES
