Ashokamitran, winner of Sahitya Akademi Award and one of Tamil's best known writers has been writing novels and short stories for over 40 years.
Translated from the Tamil, Kalyan Raman captures the nuances of his chiseled prose, bringing to sharp focus the quintessentially human characters that people Ashokamitran's world.
In the stories in this collection, Ashokamitran arrives at a larger sense of the world through the trials and tribulations of ordinary people. His spare, lean prose seamlessly blends together his acute perceptions, his fine eye for detail and his laconic humor.
