9788189884642: Secrets Spaces: A Collection of Stories

A striking collection of short stories that effortlessly recreates the hidden, secret spaces of women's lives, narratives of sexual assault, illicit liaisons and child abuse. Each story uses several voices and perspectives to unveil mysteries and sudden revelations. The protagonists are strong women generally without men who conspire to conceal family secrets and shield the vulnerable. In some of the stories the very houses that the characters live in become the site as well as the metaphor for the hidden spaces of the mind. In "Suralakshmi Villa the house takes on a dynamic life and records and reveals truths hidden from the people who inhabit it. In Princess Poulomi and Crooked House too, the changing fortunes of the characters are reflected in the homes they inhabit. "Accident and From an Upstairs Window play with the crime story genre exploring adultery real and imagined. The powerful and extremely visual story Mobile Mataji explores the themes of greed and lust, religious superstition and violence in an explosive mix.
