ABOUT THIS BOOK

The first in the Urban Shots series, this scintillating collection of contemporary short stories by authors from diverse backgrounds offers a glimpse into the fast-paced and complex urban world we occupy. Each story captures a slice of the urban landscape and lucidly explores themes such as relationships, friendship, domestic violence and longing—all set against the backdrop of the glitz and chaos of modern-day living.
‘Apple Pies and a Grey Sweater’ reveals the power of true love; ‘A Cup of Tea’ pokes gentle fun at a middle-class couple’s lacklustre marriage; and the grim ‘Liberation’ showcases the courage of a woman to break free and tread a new path.
Edited by bestselling author Paritosh Uttam, Urban Shots: First Collection is a heart-tugging experience in love, regret, acceptance, hope and freedom, among other things.
