If It Is Sweet
by Mridula Koshy
What hardship does to the human spirit is one of the central questions asked by literature.

In If It Is Sweet, precisely etched characters collide, the blind suddenly seeing the blind. Mridula Koshy plumbs the chasms across which they stare, asking the question: what is it people see when they see one another? Her characters are proximate, though from vastly different class backgrounds.

This collection also claims Delhi's place in the world. Although not all of the stories are set in Delhi it is clear that Delhi is their centre of gravity. Kotla and Klamath Falls, Oregon rest cheek to cheek and Los Angeles' Sunset Blvd runs right through Connaught Place, and alongside KG Marg. Above all Koshy propels the reader amongst the lives jostling on these streets to see the dark interior of their stories illuminated briefly in their moment of contact

The Gift
by Cecelia Ahern
If you could wish for one gift this Christmas,what would it be?

Every day Lou battles with the clock. He always has two places to be at the same time. He always has two things to do at once. When asleep he dreams. In between dreams, he runs through the events of the day while making plans for the next. When at home with his wife and family, his mind is always someplace else.

On his way into work one early winter morning, Lou meets Gabe, a homeless man sitting outside the office building. Intrigued by him and on discovering that he could also be very useful to have around, Lou gets Gabe a job in the post room.

But soon Lou begins to regret helping Gabe. His very presence unsettles Lou-and how does Gabe appear to be in two places at the same time?

As Christmas draws closer, Lou starts to understand the value of time. He sees what is truly important in life yet at the same time he learns the harshest lesson of all.

This is a story about people who, not unlike parcels, hide secrets. They cover themselves in layers until the right person unwraps them and discovers what's inside. Sometimes you have to be unraveled in order to find out who you really are.

Known Turf
by Annie Zaidi
'Annie Zaidi tells these stories from different parts of India with compassion, detail and importantly, with a gentle humour.The reports and conversations are very well spaced. Often,the very funny conversations, which so well capture the flavour of non metro India, set you up for a tale of sudden brutality.The stories on dalits in the Punjab easily rank amongst the best done on the subject. This author sketches the personality of her subjects with warmth and sympathy and humour,but minus the cliches that often make such stories a heavy read.The stories span a massive range from little bus and road journeys with engaging portraits, to child hunger, debt, bondage, untouchability, religious tension and conflict and crimes against women. Above all, it is the quality of the story-telling that grips you.
