Desi Girls: Stories by Indian Women Writers Abroad
Edited by Divya Mathur
Susham Bedi, Achala Sharma, Vayu Naidu, Archana Painuly and Divya Mathur are just some of the award-winning writers in this magical, memorable collection of 22 Short Stories.
Life is a constant challenge for the characters in these stories. Themes of courtship, marriage and betrayal - of losing and re-forming one's identity while trying to live up to Indian ideals of behaviour in an alien environment - contain all the vibrancy of India herself. And amidst the fragrance, colour and beloved familiarity of the rituals that accompany the characters, many varied and sometimes disturbing dramas are played out in these stories.
