Book synopsis/description:

With an uncanny eye for the nuances of individual situations and strong evocative styles, the three writers in this volume give us an insight into the interior landscapes of characters drawn largely from the Hindi-speaking middle and poorer class.

We meet restless and frustrated characters fighting against the demands and hypocrisies of both the conservative and so-called ‘liberal’ aspects of society. Here the interior monologue is the primary form of expression, loneliness and alienation are dominant, and the personal is the chosen space for the articulation of politics.

These are three profoundly existential writers and the stories, masterpieces of psychological realism.

Ruth Vanita co-edited Manushi from 1978 to 1990. She is the author of several books, including Same-Sex Love in India: A Literary History (with Saleem Kidwai); Gandhi’s Tiger and Sita’s Smile: Essays on Gender, Sexuality and Culture; and most recently Gender, Sex and the City: Urdu Rekhti Poetry 1780-1870. She has translated many works from Hindi to English, including Ugra’s Chocolate and his memoir, Apni Khabar, Premchand’s stories, Mannu Bhandari’s The Great Feast, and RajendraYadav’s Sara Akash
