Bringing together some of the most renowned exponents of the contemporary Telegu Short story, the eighteen stories in this collection are representative of experiences that are at once sharply individual and undeniably universal.
From the horrific but apt view of justice advocated in 'cattle thief' to the delightful verbal sparring in 'Can't Dance', from the disturbing vision of dehumanizing poverty in 'Shish' to the hilarious prospects of becoming a stock market Guru in 'By the Grace of our Goddess of wealth', these stories straddle realms as diverse as Dalitism, Naxalism, personal relationships and individual idiosyncrasies.
Carefully chosen and skillfully translated this anthology is part of the series of contemporary short fiction in translation published by Penguin.
