    Description
    Endorsement - Intriguing stories by established or rising writers in which technology is examined to connect, question, provoke and entertain. - Tabish Khair, author of How to Fight Islamist Terror from the Missionary Position.

    We live in a world where battles are fought in cyberspace, relationships are forged through voice - Over - IP and declarations of love are made through speedy text messages. Pertinently then, the stories in Only Connect weigh the deep impact of technology on our lives, relationships and the ways in which we perceive each other and ourselves.

    While Meenakshi Bharats B Wid U Soon shows how, despite the distance between them, technology helps a couple share the birth of their baby, Janhavi Acharekars Sneha, 25 highlights the hoax of digital ties as a young girl is conned by a cyber-lover. The sinister face of technology is alarmingly demonstrated by Malik Sajads graphic tale, Facebooked, Chandani Lokuges Trial by Media and Kiran Nagarkars The Race for Arms. Technology changes the language we speak, as dramatized in Neelum Saran Gours A Software Sonata. It colours our perception of lived experience, as shown by Sharon Rundle in Fugue for Guinea Pigs. And, in fact, technology even irrevocably changes the way we connect with art as Yasmine Gooneratne describes in Barry Meets His Muse.

    A collection of twenty riveting stories, Only Connect traces this brave new world we have come to inherit.
