Read full description of the books Shashi Deshpande: Collected Stories, Volume 1:This is a collection of short stories written by Deshpande before she began her award-winning novels. At first I was disappointed, as a few of the stories failed to stir me, although for fans of literature, it was evident that she had been sharpening her pen in these. However, about one-third of the way through, the stories really began to bite. Deshpande is a master of heart-wrenching emotion, and all her known themes of gender, expectation, family life in India, as well as a variety of interesting settings (first, second and third person perspectives, narratives of queens and cleaning women, small girls and old women) do not fail to stir the heart and educate the mind.
