Blue Women: Stories
Author: Anukrti Upadhyay
A striking new collection of short fiction from the award-winning author of Kintsugi, Daura and Bhaunri.
A young girl who forms a curiously intimate friendship with a bat...
A man whose life is wrecked by an unsightly big toe...
A teenager who will go to any lengths to have her stepfather to herself...
The stories in The Blue Women paint vivid portraits of people's lives as they encounter the strange and the enigmatic - whether it is other people, creatures, nature, the inanimate, or themselves. With rare insightfulness, Anukrti Upadhyay shines a light on the fractures and fears, the prejudices and wounds, the desires and memories that inhabit the deepest recesses of her characters' psyches.
Original and gripping, these are stories that will worm their way deep into your heart and mind.
