Overview
The genre referred to as the Indian short story in English is more expansive and faithful to the nuances of a multicultural, diverse nation like India than the Indian novel in English. This genre has produced abundant creative variety but limited critical appraisal.The Indian Short Story in English, the first wide ranging study of its kind, addresses this need. This book studies collections of short stories against changing social and political mores, recording how human nature reacts to as well influences events. Each chapter is period-based and gives pen portrait of authors and their works. The book is an enduring and indispensable resource for lay readers, students, bloggers and research scholars.
