Crowded Rooms
Description
Back of the Book

There are weekends when all you have is your stamp collection. For some it is their stamp book for some their CD collection for others pets. For Maya it was her lamps.

Two bored young men on a rainy evening shoot at Maya’s lamps one by one even as her neighbours upstairs spray paint it’s all your fault on a giant hoarding and take the entire city on a collective guilt trip.

In TV is Good an angry television comes looking for revenge against its couch potato master who dared turn it off. And in An office story a pernicious office memo takes on a life of its own growing into a hefty carton and travelling abroad with its evil message.

In the nine stories in Crowded Rooms Prem Nath etches urban existence in fine detail a world of towering high rises claustrophobic rooms haunted highways and impersonal office cabins. And even as his characters deal with the boredom and displacement of modern life they find new ways of engaging with the world they live in some real some dreamlike but always fresh.

Vividly imagined witty and warm crowded rooms marks the debut of an important new voice in Indian short fiction.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
