Product Details


   • ”Ambai’s stories explore the nuances of personal relationships, complex networks of emotions, and mingle themselves insightfully.” – The Telegraph
   • ”Ambai’s stories…are boldly experimental, pointing to the real source of the best Indian fiction in the vernacular languages. She makes use of polyphony, fragmentation, and multiple persepctives, and her translator succeeds in capturing her technical virtuosity.” – Times Literary Supplement
   • ”Ambai brings to bear upon her tales the weight of her knowledge of the mythic, literary, and Puranic…A felicity of language and the easy flow of words make the translation a pleasure to read.” – The Hindu
   • ”Ambai excels in making physical movements parallel the progression in her stories…Lakshmi Holmstrom has been able to settle down so comfortably with the psyche of Ambai, that her translations of the latter’s Tamil writings have the easy flow of the original.” – Deccan Herald
