About The Book
This definitive edition brings together all the short stories Gajra Kottary has written in one
comprehensive volume. A keen observer of the minutiae of everyday life, she infuses these
stories with an uncanny understanding of the feminine psyche in the three sections the stories are
divided into â€“ the complicated aspects of a womanâ€™s relationship with a man, the shades of grey
that mark interactions between women, and the self-reflective bond a woman has with her own
self. Always engaging and heartfelt, delightfully unpredictable, often laced with a sense of
wicked humour, these 50 stories provide a fascinating portrait of urban women and their
predicaments in contemporary India and an insight into the work of one of the countryâ€™s finest
authors writing in English.
