Bombay Wali and other stories, my lively fiction collection, published by Guernica Editions (Spring 2013), is now in its second edition! I'm having fun presenting it at literary and community events in various Canadian cities. Get your copy at:

"Veena Gokhale shows genuine promise as a short story writer."
Heather Leighton, The Rover.
"These are stories that provide the genuine flavour and taste of India, and other exotic locales. [...] we meet true-to-life characters imbued with interest and complexity. These are rich stories, well-imagined, deeply felt."
Mark Frutkin, author, Fabrizio's Return, winner of the 2006 Trillium Book Award.
Twelve tales that provide startling glimpses of contemporary life in Bombay and elsewhere. Stories about friendship and resentment, family ties and freedom, violence, public and private; despair and acceptance, ambition and uncertainty, growing up and growing old.
I have also written a novel called Simply there to help.
