Description

From travel, suspense, crime, haunted houses, wicked and adventures stories from different periods and places all over the world, Ruskin bond, our anthologiser par excellence, now shifts his focus. In a world rent apart with excitement-good and bad-this anthology brings together stories to restore one’s faith in the goodness of human nature.

Stories that symbolize the healing, therapeutic and rejuvenating effect that literature can have. These are stories that you return to, again and again, over the years. They will always bring you something-warmth, hope, and the joie de vivre so important in our everyday lives.
