This comprehensive anthology of modern Indian writing, covering about 150 years, shatters many illusions about the literature of the continent. Rather than being based on the handful of writers who produce work in English, it focuses on the diverse writings that stem from India's multiple, sometimes competing, traditions. Translations from Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, Tamil and the South sit alongside writing in English, bringing to light the greatest and most engaging writers from India's recent history. With introductions to the writers and their work, this is an electic and enlightening anthology of Indian writing.
