Vijayan's ‘The Wart' and Devanuru Mahadeva's ‘Amasa', are less familiar to readers but are nevertheless classics of the art of the short story. This new and revised edition includes three additional classics: R.K. Narayan's ‘Another Community', Avinash Dolas's ‘The Victim' and Ismat Chughtai's ‘The Wedding Shroud'. The Penguin Book of Modern Indian Short Stories is a marvellous and entertaining introduction to the rich diversity of pleasures that the Indian short story–a form that has produced masters in over a dozen languages–can offer. 9780143027751
