  • Description

    A Fistful of Earth and Other Stories is a collection of short stories written by Siddhartha Gigoo. Written in an elegant and lyrical prose and depicting a wide spectrum of themes, these stories will take you to a world of dispute and discrimination, of banishment and exile, of loneliness and anguish, but also to a world in which a hope for redemption still glistens.

    Summary of the Book

    Set in a land plagued by extreme political chaos and war, A Fistful of Earth and Other Stories paints the picture of a surreal world where people find themselves caught in situations over which they have absolutely no control. You will be able to witness a series of bizarre incidents - a researcher is confound by the hushed secrets he unearths about a dying clan, a monk meets a mysterious stranger at a railway station, a municipal commissioner suddenly goes crazy for no fathomable reason, a medical intern finds a startling secret behind a patient’s death that was hitherto unknown, two chess-loving inmates are failing to escape from a prison even after the place has ceased to be one, and a refugee tackles an odyssey through time and memory in search of a lost friend. Treat yourself to some of the transcendental stories collected in this anthology.
