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.

The Last Days of Dogtown

The Last Days of Dogtown
by Anita Diamant
Set on the high ground at the heart of Cape Ann, the village of Dogtown is peopled by widows, orphans, spinsters, scoundrels, whores, free Africans, and "witches." Among the inhabitants of this hamlet are Black Ruth, who dresses as a man and works as a stonemason; Mrs. Stanley, an imperious madam whose grandson, Sammy, comes of age in her brothel; Oliver Younger, who survives a miserable childhood at the hands of his aunt; and Cornelius Finson, a freed slave. At the center of it all is Judy Rhines, a fiercely independent soul, deeply lonely, who nonetheless builds a life for herself against all imaginable odds.

Rendered in stunning, haunting detail, with Diamant's keen ear for language and profound compassion for her characters, The Last Days of Dogtown is an extraordinary retelling of a long-forgotten chapter of early American life.
