This superb collection features seventeen award winning best short fiction published during 1999-2000 in fourteen Indian languages, chosen by a panel of distinguished writers and scholars.

Here are seventeen award winning stories whose common claim is only to excellence. The accent is on the inherent heterogeneity of contemporary India, an India constantly negotiating contradictions and coming-togethers, in fiction that both creates and breaks stereotypes. There is no attempt here to yoke together universal themes or basic conflicts, yet brought serendipitously together is a galaxy of master writers - the pioneers and the path-breakers - looking back with longing and looking ahead with desire.

Translated sensitively into English, Katha Prize Stories 10 makes for powerful and unusual reading.
