Indian Women's Short Fiction

Rajeshwar Mittapalli (Editor) Joel Kuortti (Editor)
Synopsis Although Indian women's short fiction has always enjoyed equal importance and popularity as their novels, very little critical attention has been paid to it so far. Indian women's short fiction seeks to fulfill this long felt need. It puts together fifteen perceptive and analytical articles by scholars across the world. The articles, which are focussed on native Indian writing as well as diasporic short fiction, deal with such interesting literary issues as construction of femininity, disablement and enablement, Bengali heritage, hybrid identities, nostalgia, representation of the partition violence, tradition and modernity, and cultural perspectives. This book will prove useful to scholars interested in short fiction studies in general and Indian women's short fiction in particular.
