Set in the imaginary town of Karuthupuzha (literally: the black river) somewhere in the south of India, this delightful collection of stories brings together an eccentric cast of characters. From a philosophical thief to a stingy trader to a sly godman, the men and women who appear in these pages are mired in the everyday rhythms of life. But in their ordinary adventures lies the promise of the extraordinary and the incredible.
Told in a fresh new voice that is wry yet humane, these tales are very much like R.K. Narayan's Malgudi stories, full of life's little ironies and delicate wisdom.
