This book brings you ten of the most unforgettable and beautifully crafted stories in excellent translations by Lakshmi Holmstorm.

Stories which recreate in fine detail the richness of life in the village of Punjai in the heart of Thanjavur district, seen from the perspective of modern urban life and its alienating pressures. Stories of a lifestyle that no longer exists, told realistically without romanticizing or idealizing, using fantasy and surrealism. Stories built around memories about memory, the mythologizing of memory, and paralleling memory and dream.
