The Intrusion and Other Stories
by Shashi Deshpande Description

Translated from the original Tamil by the author herself, these stories are sharply evocative and haunting in their exploration of the lives of women in contemporary India.

The women in these stories are unforgettable - in their struggle towards self-realization, their commitment to a special feminine sensibility and the way they seek to define their space in a traditional society that defines them as sharply as it restraints.

At once feminine and feminist, Kannan addressed the reader in the delicate voice of poetry and a prose with verve, wit and a bold poise. Her transparent translator retains the power and enigmatic silences of the original.

Kannan's work is remarkably powerful in a range of social parameters. - - The Times of India

The stories spin on themes some of which have an ineffable, mystical quality that would make one think. - - The Hindu
