The bestseller Khushwant Singh Selects Best Indian Short Stories - Volume I, offering the finest stories by India's master storytellers... The Indian short story is extraordinary in its ability to stick to the traditional rules of the craft and still demonstrate remarkable originality. It revolves around a limited number of characters, confines itself in time and space, and has a well-plotted narrative that drives its central theme. Within the traditional framework, however, creativity flowers, and what emerges is a story that is marked with freshness and imagination. This volume is chock-full with such stories, written by authors well known in their regional languages as well as those who made names for themselves in English literary circles. Carefully selected by Khushwant Singh, India's literary giant, these pieces represent the best of Indian writing from around the country. Contributors include - M.J. Akbar, Mulk Raj Anand, Kabir Bedi, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Margaret Bhatty, Ruskin Bond, Krishan Chander, Suresh Chopra, Ismat Chugtai, Kamala Das, Manoj Das, Anita Desai, Shashi Deshpande, K.S. Duggal, Wendy Fernandes, Colleen Gantzer, Hugh Gantzer, Balwant Gargi, Qurratulain Hyder, Abdul Jabbar and Amrita Pritam.
