Twelve stories that provide startling glimpses of contemporary life in Bombay, and elsewhere. An innocuous jazz concert that awakens painful memories for a middle-aged caregiver, a wealthy business woman compelled by the desire to hurt her best friend, a lonely, old woman in a Tokyo apartment who seeks the touch of a baby?s hand. Tales about friendship and repulsion, family ties and freedom; violence, public and private; ambition and uncertainty, alienation and acceptance, growing up and growing old.

About the Author:

Veena Gokhale started her career in the mercurial world of print journalism in Bombay, in the 1980s. She first came to Canada on a journalism fellowship, returning to do a Masters in Environmental Studies in Toronto. She has published fiction and poetry in anthologies and literary journals. She lives in Montreal with her partner, Marc-Antoine.

Review:

These are stories that provide the genuine flavour and taste of India, and other exotic locales ? we meet true-to-life characters imbued with interest and complexity. ? Mark Frutkin
