Overview From the award-winning writer of the acclaimed play "Harvest", this debut collection of stories will electrify readers with its unusual, radical, and troubling themes. Here are ten tales, some new, some old, and all of them edgy. In biting and satirical critiques of contemporary society, Manjula Padmanabhan displays a remarkable range. We read of a white American widow who plans a designer version of sati, or self-immolation, a pervert and his magic phallus on a double-decker bus, a black American girl with a unique take on Hindu civilization, a juvenile mad scientist who schemes in a proletarian dystopia, electronic simulacra that make high-voltage love, and a mature scientist who confronts infertility in teeming India. For good measure, there's also a coming-of-age story, a marriage proposal, a thwarted murder, and a story about the Government of India's Bureau of Reincarnation.
