9780143065876: The Portrait of a Lady: Collected Stories

'A Khushwant Singh short story is not flamboyant but modest, restrained, well-crafted...Perhaps his greatest gift as a writer is a wonderful particularity of description' London Magazine Khushwant Singh first established his reputation as a writer through the short story. His stories wry, poignant, erotic and, above all, human bear testimony to Khushwant Singh's remarkable range and his ability to create an unforgettable world. Spanning over half a century, this volume contains all the short stories Khushwant Singh has ever written, including the delightfully tongue-in-cheek The Maharani of Chootiapuram', written in 2008. 'Khushwant's stories enthrall...[He has]an ability akin to that of Somerset Maugham...the ability to entertain intelligently' India Today 'His stories are better than [those of] any Indian writing in English Times of India The Collected Short Stories leaves the reader in a delightful, inebriated trance' Sunday Chronicle He is not an ordinary short story writer...[Collected Stories] is delightful reading' Hindustan Times
