This collection of Raja Rao's short fiction traverses the entire span of his literary career. These vibrant stories reveal his deep understanding of village life and his passion for India's freedom struggle, and showcase his experimentation with form and style. They range from ones written by a struggling young writer to those of later years, displaying a mature, stylistic formalism. With an introduction by R. Parthasarathy 'One of the writers who laid the literary groundwork for an independent India.' Telegraph 'Among the first major Indian writers to cajole the English language into conveying the distinctive cadences of his native country.' New York Times
