A collection of elegantly written stories by Tissa Devendra who writes, with humour, nostalgia and sharp observation, of curious characters in little towns, forgotten villages, and old ‘Kachcheries’ where he was fortunate to spend much of his life. He casts a fond and grateful look at the books and ‘trash’ he avidly red, and the little bookshops he haunted, as a schoolboy. His stories are people by the most intriguing persons - gypsies, fading film stars, vampires, lissome dancers, English dukes and lost loves. These wryly-affectionate glimpses of a world, now lost in the mists of time, will fascinate the reader. Tissa Devendra’s earlier “Tales from the Provinces” was short-listed for the Gratiaen Prize 1998.
