The Second Nose & Other Stories

Yashpal (Author) Anand (Author)
Synopsis The Stories in this anthology, some of them appearing for the first time in English translation, seek to give a larger view of Yashpal as a short story writer as well as provide a taste of his forthright approach to the questions of his time. Whether exploring the theme of the complicity of the ruled with the rulers, or the unquestioning supplication of human beings to a deity or faith, or social reform and social protest, the stories are coloured by the author’s deep concern with the India he fought for and Dreamed of. In a world weary of territorial strife, religious rancour and social iniquities, the stories are perhaps more relevant today than when they were written almost fifty years back.
