  • Description

    Why have I chosen to write about the twenty-first year of my life? Well, for one thing, it’s often the most significant year in any young person’s life. A time for falling in love; a time to set about making your dreams come true; a time to venture forth, to blare new trails, take risks, do your own thing, follow your star...

    A handful of Nuts is a gloriously funny and unexpectedly tender story of being young and adventurous in small town India. The narrator hopes to establish himself as a writer but he is constantly diverted from his task by romances, escapades and other distractions. The Maharani of Magador; Stewart Granger, the movie-star; William Matheson, the always-broke Journalist: sitaram, the annoying but resourceful son of the local dhobi; a runaway circus tiger and an assorted posse of Dehradun denizens populate the book making it a delightful read. A Classic coming of age story, A handful of Nuts is one of Ruskin Bond’s finest works.

    Amazing novel

    I am fond of Ruskin's writings. I have earlier read his short stories. But,this is the first novel I read and I highly like it. Very small but very wonderful, humorous, interesting. The way Ruskin tell the simple daily things in a humorous way is his speciality. Also the romantic scenes are very good. And chapter with Indu's mother is highly funny. How he describes her beauty is very witty. And I like many things like description of first rain, different types of knocks,seeing his lost father...
