The stories in this collection often display a wry sense of humour, such as ‘The Dal Eaters' in which a family of cheapskates journeys to Kashmir. While Ashk's satirical eye is employed to great effect in ‘The Cartoon Hero', where a hapless traveller encounters a petty politician on a train, his talent for capturing human frailties is amply evident in ‘Furlough' and ‘In the Insane Asylum'. Exhibiting a lightness of touch and a deep engagement with the human condition, these stories come alive in Daisy Rockwell's delightful translation. 9780143417187
