Product description


"Bewitchingly beautiful" (The Times)

"To compare Anita Desai's fiction with that of Chekhov or the short stories of Tolstoy is not extravagant; it is entirely warranted... anyone looking for the rare frisson at the heart of consummate storytelling need look no farther" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"From a web of connections, Desai spins stories of history and loss that move the reader not with epiphanies, but through the sheer beauty of her storytelling" (Time Out)

"A pleasure" (Keith Miller Telegraph)

"Anita Desai writes exquisitely." (The Scotsman)

Book Description

An absolute jewel from one of Chatto's preeminent novelists: a triptych of stories from India's finest living woman writer
