17 Stories 17 fierce, honest, moving portraits of women Shobhaa Dé unfolds the betrayals and intimacies, the needs and regrets, the secrets that sustain relationships and the ones that threaten to destroy it. In this book, you will be confronted with vaguely familiar scents and images that draw us deeper into a world filled with eccentricities, darkness, love and sorrows - a world that strangely mirrors our own. With lyrical precision and suspenseful storytelling, this volume is rich with contemporary characters that wonderfully integrate different emotions, newly analyzed, examined and experienced. Part dystopian, part dreamy, part romance, part drama, Shobhaa Dé manages to bring forward a remarkable account of the power of possibility and a woman's sense of self. A great read that will force you to question and accept your own society, attitude, purpose and life.
