Her Story So Far: Tales of the Girl Child in India

Her Story So Far: Tales of the Girl Child in India Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important collection showcases the most sensitive short fiction on the subject of the girl child by some of India's finest writers. The stories cut across social, economic and regional divides to reveal what life is like for a girl growing up in India. And they raise a crucial question: will our society ever rise above its innate hypocrisies and change the way it regards its women?

To read these stories is to feel pain, bewilderment, outrage, compassion and a sudden surge of hope at finding love and tenderness where one least expects it.
