About this title

Synopsis:

A woman haunted by the wind. A land where ghosts speak for the voiceless. A washer of the dead who begins to hear them speak . . . These are stories of the unquiet. Women whisper through this collection. They voice their loves, lives, fears and yearnings. To label this collection as ghost stories or feminist stories is to miss the nuances and range of female experience. As ghost stories they make you look uneasily over your shoulder; as female narrative they stun you with the power of their keen insight. Whimsical, terrifying and compelling, these powerful and haunting tales about our commonplace fears and tragedies provide a scathing commentary on the lives of women in India and are universal in their appeal.
