ABOUT THIS BOOK

Urban Shots: Crossroads presents sharply etched portraits of daily life in contemporary Indian cities. These stories range from the lyrical to the devastating and never once flinch at the ugliness which pervades urban India’s social tapestry. The heart-warming ‘Song of the Summer Bird’ is an ode to childhood; ‘Gautam Gargoyle’ is a searing look at a man’s quest to fit in at work; and ‘Crossroads’ succinctly captures a man’s divided affection between his wife and a seductress.
Bold, layered and startlingly real, these stories could well be about our own lives.
Edited by bestselling author Ahmed Faiyaz, this anthology includes stories by both established writers and by new talent. Never before has the urban world been explored in such minutiae as in Urban Shots: Crossroads.
