Description

This exciting new anthology showcases 21 of the best short stories by South Asian women under the age of 40.

Ranging from the lyrical to the humourous to the darkly disturbing, these previously unpublished stories highlight the desires, concerns and obsessions of young women from the subcontinent. A new generation of writers is emerging who are boldly tackling new forms and styles, including historical detective fiction, graphic short stories, stories intercut with email and sms messages.

The stories are as varied as the women themselves, and celebrate the diversity and range of women’s literature for the twenty-first century.
