Do you wonder about the lives of the people around you? Do you wonder if they, like you, are stuck in the daily drudge of existence?

Their lives may surprise you.

Meet memorable characters like Nina, the traveller who seems to be in a perpetual rush; and Aditya, a harried professional who meets a mysterious stranger when he pops into a bar for a drink. Enter the world of Rina, a quiet girl attached to her Jane Austen novel; and Amina, whose childhood friend comes for a visit. These may seem like ordinary people, but by the end of the story you will find they are anything but normal.

In this engaging collection of short stories, Gauri Jhangiani explores the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.
