Potpourri is a collection of choicest stories from the treasure trove of the indisputable master storyteller Ruskin Bond. Covering an array of themes horror, romance, humour, crime and mystery these tales form an eclectic blend in this book.

Bond presents an evocative and affection memoir of vignettes of life in Mussoorie and other places he has visited, and introduces us to a rich cast of characters - his family, friends and those who have left a lasting impression on him.

The stories with their diverse themes and flavours try to paints a realistic portrait of life, peppered as it is with multiple hues. As such, it condenses the pleasure of almost ten books in one. While ‘He said it with Arsenic’ lends a wicked touch, ‘Love and Cricket’ adds a dash of romance to the compilation. ‘The Overcoat’ takes us on a supernatural trip, while ‘The Girl on the Train’ with its sudden twists, snaps us out of our humdrum existence.

Filled with warmth and gentle humour, this book captures the timeless rhythm of life in the mountains, adventures at sea, and thrill in an alien land. Hand-picked personally by Ruskin Bond, it is truly a collector’s item and a treat for all his fans.
