The Gourd Seller and Other Stories by Abha Iyengar
SGD $10.00

In this collection of short stories, Abha Iyengar brings us stories that are sometimes whimsical, but often serious and tragic, with undercurrents of sex and violence running through. Her stories explore the fragmented lives of those who are a part of the urban landscape and others who migrate from rural landscapes to join them and add to the fragments. The stories speak of women’s lives and their ideas of what constitutes self. Her tales are said to have the tone of fables, a certain visceral rawness, a rather poetic turn of prose, and mostly, ‘defy any easy genre classification.’ More here: https://kitaab.org/our-publications/
