The Collected Short Stories of Khushwant Singh
by Khushwant Singh Description

Skilful dramatization of an unusual life situation of an anguished women by Sahitya Akademi Award winner.

The intense story of a sensitive young wife torn between the desire to abandon the boredom and hypocrisy of her middle class and ostensibly comfortable existence, and the realization that he bonds that bind her to it cannot easily be broken.


Skilful dramatization, the narrative is precariously perched between myth and social reality.. For the talent itself, as the novel evidences, is exceptional in its innate sensibility and awareness of he craft of fiction. - The Times of India

A disturbing but rewarding experience - something which makes us sit up and ask: What is this thing we call life? What is it all about? - Sunday Standard

Reveals flashes of a rare poetic quality that helps lift the narrative far above its drab subjects. - Economic Times

Presents the story with insight, clarity and in a flawless style. - The Mail

Greater maturity, greater mellowness, a more harmonious lilt. - Indian Book Chronicle
