While this collection of short stories is not the one I've chosen for this challenge - see my list here - I picked it up in my local library to read the other day and have to recommend it to you all.
It's a wonderful collection of stories, reflecting the diverse culture and experiences of Indian women, as well as Indian folk lore. The book spans over half a century, and reflects many languages and cultures.
I've now started reading Povidky: Short Stories by Czech Women (Short Stories by Women from Around the World) by Daniela Hodrova, Kveta Legatova, Nancy Hawker, and David Short , another in this collection of Short Stories from Women Around the World.
Thanks to this challenge I've rediscovered my love of short stories. Thanks!
