Bombay Wali

Bombay Wali and other stories, my lively fiction collection, was published by Guernica Editions  in 2013. Bombay Wali means a woman from Bombay.

"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.

Your local library may have Bombay Wali, or you could even request a copy. I'd love to hear from you!

These are 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.
