A Day in the Life: Anjum Hasan. Before you go to download or buy “A Day in the Life: Anjum Hasan”, let’s have a look at the description and summary of the book.
Quixotic nonconformists in small towns and young newly-weds trying to keep up with the times; a forlorn retiree helpless in the face of contemporary anger and a middle-class woman’s bond with her maid. Fourteen well-crafted stories give us a sense of the daily life of a wide cast of characters. Anjum Hasan’s protagonists are, as always, inward-looking, and vulnerable outliers and whimsical. Where is their place in the new order, where are they going and where have they come from?
Subtly subversive, Quietly devastating, and wonderfully wry, Anjum Hasan is a home-grown talent whose stories are increasingly the good address for authentic Indian fiction.
