Overview for The Penguin Book of Modern Indian Short Stories

This superb collection contains some of the best Indian short stories written in the last fifty years, both in English and in the regional languages. Some of these stories-'We Have Arrived in Amritsar' by Bhisham Sahni, 'Companions' by Raja Rao, 'The Sky and the Cat' by U.R. Anantha Murthy, 'A Devoted Son' by Anita Desai-have been widely anthologized and are well known. Others, like Premendra Mitra's 'The Discovery of Telenapota', Gangadhar Gadgil's 'The Dog that Ran in Circles', Mowni's 'A Loss of Identity', O.V. Vijayan's 'The Wart' and Devanuru Mahadeva's 'Amasa', are less familiar to readers but are nevertheless classics of the art of the short story. This new and revised edition includes three additional classics: R.K. Narayan's 'Another Community', Avinash Dolas's 'The Victim' and Ismat Chughtai's 'The Wedding Shroud'. The Penguin Book of Modern Indian Short Stories is a marvellous and entertaining introduction to the rich diversity of pleasures that the Indian short story-a form that has produced masters in over a dozen languages-can offer.
