    Are damaged people destined to inflict damage? A young boy sidelined for being different, an artist unable to distance herself from her past, a famed actress past her prime, a Casanova who plays women but is acutely aware of his loneliness. These are some, amongst the various tales of damaged people seeking escape, fulfilment or acceptance. Some long, some short, these sixteen stories have common themes of unhappy marriages; of secrets and lies, pleasure and guilt; of children letting down parents and vice versa; of women of a certain age, and whether or not they’ve still ‘got it’; of entitled and misogynistic men; and of the hypocrisy and double standards within Indian society. With original and unexpected angles, these tales explore the darkness that underpins the often ordinary lives of people. Thought-provoking, intense and evocative, these stories will transport you into the heart of India where tradition and modernity collide, often with devastating results.

    Author Info
    • Always a voracious reader, Poornima started writing at the age of eight and never really stopped, although there were many dry spells. She found her writing voice in 2009 when a short story of hers placed in an online competition run by The Guardian newspaper. Having re-discovered her first love, she started her online blog at www.poornimamanco.wordpress.com. Initially, she published many of her stories, thoughts and musings there. In 2018, she decided to take a leap of faith into Indie publishing and compiled her stories into two separate books as a part of a trilogy. She is currently at work on the third book of short stories. Most of her tales are set in India as her formative years were spent there. Born and brought up in New Delhi, she moved to the United Kingdom in her twenties. Yet, she has never been able to cut the umbilical cord that ties her to her birthplace. She loves reading, travelling and the company of good friends. She is married and has two teenage daughters.
