Anthology of New Writing: Select Short Stories by Women Writers
EDITOR :Shireen Quadri
QUICK TAKE: What are the defining elements of short fiction by contemporary women writers? How do they navigate the world around them to create literature? These questions gave shape to the idea of the anthology, selected from a pool of submissions
The 18 stories reflect a certain kind of sensibility and sensitivity. It takes us along the pathways these writers forge to create art out of the rhythms and ruptures of life, dwelling on their characters’ experiences and memories of a thousand pleasures and pains suspended in the continuum of time. They portray the concerns and preoccupations of individuals both within and outside the precincts of home. They speak of our times — the way we live, the way we love.
The stories, set in culturally diverse places — from Kashmir to Kerala, and from Washington and London to Rome — are by 18 writers from India and around the world, including two from England and one each from Canada and the US.
