Product Description:

This collection contains 15 of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's favourite stories which she has selected from her four previous collections. They are all set in India, where the author has lived for most of her adult life.

Review:

A writer of genius ... a writer of world class - a master storyteller ( Sunday Times)

An allusiveness, a susceptibility to mood, a tenderness to which Chekhov was the exemplar ( V. S. Pritchett)

Marvellous ... each story perfectly constructed and complete ( Jane Gardam)

Her tussle with India is one of the richest treats of contemporary literature ( Guardian)

Brutally honest, these stories cut straight to the heart of the matter ( The Good Book Guide)

Seductive ... intelligent and frank ... Jhabvala's troubled fragments provide consolation, not in art, but in the understanding that differences between continents and cultures cannot deny the common core of human yearnings ( Times Literary Supplement)
