From the winner of the prestigious Jnanpith Award, here are stories remarkable for their emotional honesty, by turns tender, intense and lyrical. They show us characters caught in impossible compromises with life, even as they hold fast to their illusions. Like Ranji who cannot consummate her marriage for want of a roof over her head; or Meena who we weaves her desires and discontent into exquisite and intricate patterns for her eyes alone.Jayakanthan’s canvas is real, his pen subtle and ironic. A writer of uncommon insight quietly subversive

‘‘Jayakanthan’s Literature is an authentic and vivid index of India reality’’.
Jananpith Award citation
‘‘An outstanding oeuvre that reflected the travails of the downtrodden and challenged the belief system of the middle class.’’
