9780140236880: Intrusion and Other Stories

Island of Blood is a distillation of the experiences and insights of one of the finest journalists India has ever produced. During the eighties and nineties, when the Indian media rarely ventured into flashpoints like Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, Anita Pratap braved the odds to send in reports from the front, over and over again. War, ethnic conflict, earthquakes, cyclones and droughts, wherever there was a story to be told, she would track it down. First in India, then in Sri Lanka, Anita managed to gain access to LTTE chief Pirabhakaran, and her interviews with him made headlines around the world. In Afghanistan, she eluded the Taliban militia to discover the frightening reality of women's lives under a terrifying fanatical regime. Wherever she went, Anita saw and faithfully reported the consequences of racial and historical prejudice, religious and sexual discrimination, and mindless hatred and fear. And each time, she returned to the comfort of home and family with a renewed determination to appreciate and celebrate the ordinary. 'Expert at mixing comedy, tragedy and even melodrama, Anita weaves a tale that is part autobiography, part reporter's diary and part history.'

--The Week 'Anita Pratap's account is a splendid one.' --The Telegraph 'Chilling and evocative by turn.' --The Indian Express

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2000. Softcover. Book Condition: New. A haunting new collection of short stories from one of India?s most acclaimed writers Shashi Deshpande, in her new collection of short stories, explores a world darkened by the despair and unhappiness of women trying to break out of pre-defined roles. There is the newly married protagonist of the title story, whose self-respect and sense of self are violated by her crass and insensitive husband; the wife who finds herself involved in an affair because of her husband?s indifference; the mother who tries to forge a relationship with a hostile daughter? These and other stories in this collection serve to reaffirm Shashi Deshpande in her reputation as a writer of acuity and compassion. Printed Pages: 160. Bookseller Inventory # 21130
