Grey Pigeon and Other Stories

Neelum Saran Gour (Author)
Synopsis This work announces the advent of a talented young writer of fiction. In 'A New Year's Party', Geoffrey finds all his attempts to throw a successful party come to naught as his inappropriately chosen guests make their dislike for each other very vocal; the wonderful camaraderie that can exist between a four-year-old and his ancient Nana is explored in 'Song of Innocence and Experience'; two men's lives follow a similar pattern in ' A diagnosis of Destiny' - and then one of them dies to the other's horror in 'The Taste of Almonds', a senile but endearing Napa finds himself at odds with the changed times.. As each exquisite story unfolds, we are introduced to characters as varied and colorful as the parts of India to which they belong.
