ABOUT THIS BOOK

Once I saw her, leaning over the balcony railing. I stopped the taxi and waved to her. She waved back, smiling like the sun breaking through clouds.
Suffused with warmth and passion, the stories in Falling in Love Again showcase the myriad variations of romantic love—fleeting, intimate, joyous, heartbreaking. Featuring classic stories by Ruskin Bond, such as ‘The Eyes Have It’ and ‘The Girl from Copenhagen’, this stirring collection captures the range of feelings that are indubitably part of the infinite spectrum of love.

AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

Ruskin Bond has been writing for over sixty years, and has now over 120 titles in print—novels, collections of stories, poetry, essays, anthologies and books for children. His first novel, The Room on the Roof, received the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys award in 1957. He has also received the Padma Shri, and two awards from the Sahitya Akademi—one for his short stories and another for his writings for children. In 2012, the Delhi government gave him its Lifetime Achievement award.
Born in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar, Shimla, New Delhi and Dehradun. Apart from three years in the UK, he has spent all his life in India, and now lives in Mussoorie with his adopted family.
A shy person, Ruskin says he likes being a writer because ‘When I’m writing there’s nobody watching me. Today, it’s hard to find a profession where you’re not being watched!’
