This volume carries the best and most diverse collection of new short fiction from Indian writers. It also features exceptional non-fiction.
This Volume of Civil Lines 5 carries the best and most diverse collection of new short fiction from Indian writers that you are likely to read: a total of seven stories by Amit Chaudhuri, Amitava Kumar, Avtar Singh, Mina Kumar and Suketu Mehta.
Civil Lines 5 also features exceptional non-fiction. Sonia Jabbar gives us an account of life and death in Kashmir, and Urvashi Butalia literally revisits Partition: brilliant hybrid narratives, part essay, part travelogue, that make places and histories come alive with vividly realized people and their tragedies. And Anita Roy reminds us, funnily and poignantly, that all writers begin as obsessive readers.
