Featuring the works of K.R. Meera, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and Anita Nair, this limited edition set is essential reading for those who love reading fiction from South Asia. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's Oleander Girl revolves around seventeen-year-old Korobi Roy who, troubled by the silence that surrounds her parents' death, clings to her only inheritance from them: the unfinished love note she found hidden in her mother's book of poetry. But when her grandfather dies, she discovers a dark secret which will finally explain her past. The bold, wry and ebullient stories of Yellow Is the Colour of Longing put on display K.R. Meera's astonishing range of narrative techniques, as she expertly lays bare the fault lines behind the façades of everyday life, sometimes with dark humour and sometimes with astoundingly bitter sadness. Forty-five and single, Akhila has never been allowed to live her life-she is always a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a provider first-until the day she buys a one-way train ticket to the seaside town of Kanyakumari. Anita Nair's Ladies Coupé unfolds in an intimate atmosphere as Akhila gets to know her five fellow travellers. Riveted by their stories, she seeks an answer to the question that has haunted her all her life: can a woman stay single and be happy, or does she need a man to feel complete?
