9780141006833: When Darkness Falls

In When Darkness Falls, Ruskin Bond emerges yet again as a master storyteller. We meet the war veteran Markham, whose deformation ends in tragedy; Susanna, the merry widow who loved each of her seven husbands to death; and Kundan Singh, the reckless rake whom women find irresistible. There are also fascinating stories from the author s childhood, about the eccentric characters and memorable animals of old Dehradun. Told with Bond s classic wit, these charming stories will enchant and delight in equal measure.

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2001. Softcover. Book Condition: New. In When Darkness Falls, Ruskin Bond displays all the qualities of a master storyteller: a deceptively effortless style, an eye for the extraordinary in seemingly humdrum lives, and a deep empathy with his characters. We make the acquaintance of Markham, a war veteran condemned to a lifetime of loneliness by a tragic accident; Susanna, the merry widow who loved each of her seven husbands to death; the sad wife who returns after her death only to find that her husband has moved on, to another life and another love; a simpleton who outwits a crafty ghost; and Kundan Lal, the reckless rake whom women find irresistible. We also go down memory lane with the author, to Dehra Dun of the 1940s and `50s, when life was simpler and there was space for the small errors of young and eccentric lives. Humorous, sad and nostalgic, the stories in this collection are a treat for all of Ruskin Bond`s fans. Printed Pages: 102. Bookseller Inventory # 20875
