The Guilty and other stories:Vaasanthi
by Vaasanthi .
Uma and Maadhav, traumatized victims of their childhood, have agonized for two decades to unravel the painful mystery of their mother's suicide. More isolated and alone, their father Balasubramanian too grapples with a past that does not cease to haunt him....

This anthology is a veritable treat with its many tales and the twists---

A young bride takes courage in her hands to defy a tyrannical social custom. For decades a patriarch has lorded over the numerous women in the household, until one of them rebels. Declared mad by the husband, a wife is forced to confinement in a sanatorium. Nostalgia tugs at an expatriate as he is haunted by the fear that his roots will fade away.

This is a translated section of original piece by Gomathi Narayanan and V. Ramnarayan.
The Brethren
Add To Bookshelf
The Brethren
by John Grisham
They call themselves The Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. One was sent down for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. The third, for a career-ending drunken joyride. Meeting daily in the prison library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong.

Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich- very fast.

And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam....while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt. A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grip- and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings. For the Brethren, the timing couldn't be better.

Because they've just found the perfect victim....
Sita's Curse: The Language of Desire

Sita's Curse: The Language of Desire
by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu
Somewhere, behind closed doors, in her solitary world; Somewhere, under the sheets with an indifferent lover; Somewhere, is a woman who will not be denied.

Trapped for fifteen years in the stranglehold of a dead marriage and soulless household domesticity, the beautiful, full-bodied and passionate Meera Patel depends on her memories and her flights of fancy to soothe the aches that wrack her body; to quieten an unquenchable need. Until one cataclysmic day in Mumbai, when she finally breaks free...

Bold, brazen and defiant, Sita's Curse looks at the hypocrisy of Indian society and tells the compelling story of a middle-class Indian housewife's urgent need for love, respect, acceptance and sexual fulfilment.
