This sequel to Truth Tales contains ten stories by ten of the most renowned and inventive writers of India, translated from nine different languages. Rich in regional flavor, each story offers a glimpse into the everyday lives of Indian women, from the passionate political commitment of a freedom fighter to the struggle of a temple sweeper's struggle to survive with dignity.

Industry Reviews

"These stories are dense with those customs, manners, and objects that usually remain locked within regional languages." --New York Review of Books "At turns witty, poignant, intense, joyous, this anthology reveals that women's struggle for power and autonomy is a universal urge." --New Directions for Women "The stories. . . evoke a vibrant society and people worth the encounter. A welcome addition to our knowledge of the subcontinent." --Kirkus
