Read full description of the books:
Eleven short stories, all set in India, and all providing a snapshot into someone's life.
These stories were interesting and varied, covering a wide range of topics.
Children's games; a private tutor; a student with no peaceful place to study; a man obsessed with textures; an artist; a boy attending a wedding with his mother; a musician who plays tanpura; a son devoted to his father; a farewell party where the people leaving find their relationships with friends an colleagues are not what they thought; an elderly man and a night without electricity; and the final story - and American couple in India who experience different outcomes from their time there.
Worth a read, good as a gap filler, but lacked the real pull of a gripping read.
Solid at three stars.
