Product Description

I preferred the solitude of the small district town to the kind of social life I might have found in the cities; and in my books, my writing and the surrounding hills, there was enough for my pleasure and occupation.’

There is something incredibly charming and wonderful about Ruskin Bond’s portrayal of small-town life. It is a portal into a world of eccentric, odd but, above all else, kind-hearted and warm people who live alongside the natural and historical beauty found in these towns.
My Time in the Town, Bond brings together a collection of his best writing on small-town India, in all its nuanced yet simple and unhurried glory. With these stories, Bond shows us the irresistible warmth and appeal of small-town life while also exposing the often dark, superstitious, ghostly or even just politically corrupt aspects of it. This book promises to be a journey into the soulful and laid-back simplicity of small towns!
