Tell Me a Story

(2012)
A novel by

 
Set partly in the small, buzzing town of Amritsar and partly in New Delhi, this is the story of Rani, a young woman in contemporary India. She enjoys her work in a local beauty parlour though her lower middle-class family lives in a state of constant struggle to make ends meet, to hang on to their dreams, to keep their fragile lives from collapsing. As their financial troubles escalate, so do Rani s sister-in-law s taunts, brother s frustration and father s resignation. Random events happen that affect each of them, changing their lives forever. Tell Me A Story displays remarkable clarity and depth in drawing up the real semi- urban living in India. Fragile and touching, it reminds us of how thin, tenuous are the connections which bind us to our illusory, sane-seeming lives.
