The Kept Woman and Other Stories

Kamala Das (Author)
Synopsis "I feel a woman is most attractive when she surrenders to her man. She is incomplete without a man." averred Kamala Das shortly before her death in May, 2009. One of the most controversial and celebrated Indian authors, she combined in her writings rare honesty and sensitivity, provocation and poignancy. The Kept Woman and Other Stories explores the man-woman relationship in all its dimensions. Deprived, depraved, mysterous, mystical and exalted, each character, culled from experience and observation, is an incisive study of love, lust and longing. The last collection of writings that Kamala Das compiled herself before her death. The Kept Woman and Other Stories is a moving and compelling read.
