9780141006833: When Darkness Falls and Other Stories

Ruskin Bond s When Darkness Falls And Other Stories 1st Edition emphasizes the unbound creativity of the genius. The stories consisted in this book display the traits of a master storyteller. These stories portray emotions of sadness, nostalgia, and happiness and thus provide a perfect bouquet of emotions. When Darkness Falls And Other Stories 1st Edition comprises twelve other stories besides When Darkness Falls. These are The Garden of Memories, The Family Ghost, Young Man in a Tonga, Living Without Money, The Ghost in the Garden, Monkey Trouble, Topaz, The Amorous Servant, Colonel s Wilkie s Good Hunting, Susanna s Seven Husbands, The Writer s Bar, and Return of the White Pigeon. The stories of this book present a variety of characters. There is Markham in When Darkness Falls, who is war veteran. Due to an accident, he has to face a kind of outcast and live a lonely life. There is a happy widow Susanna in Susanna s Seven Husbands who loves each of her seven husbands to death. There is a reckless rake, Kundan Lal, who is famous among women. Somewhere in these stories there is also a sad woman who comes back after her death to find her husband has moved on with another love. As Bond puts himself, these stories are about how the process of growing up has made us what we are today. Most of the stories in this book were written a few months before the publication but several of them are set in the period of Bond s childhood and adulthood. They have a semi-autobiographical touch and talk about the times when Bond lived in Dehra Dun with his grandmother. The stories set in Dehra Dun of the mid nineteenth century portray certain eccentric young lives. And Living Without Money is one of the stories that was written when Bond was freelancing.

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
