To coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of that independence, Owl Books is proud to present a major anthology of the best of this dazzling body of writing, selected by Salman Rushdie and Elizabeth West. A whole tumultuous continent is reflected here: the billion faces of India, comic and tragic, harsh and beautiful, delicate and grotesque. It is a magic mirror held up to what is hidden as well as what is shown, to dreams and nightmares, to the secret truths of history and of the human heart.Hide synopsis
