The Muffled Heart Stories of the Disempowered Male
The Muffled Heart Stories of the Disempowered Male
Description
From the Back of the Book:

LIKE a necklace of variegated pearls, each with its unique lustre, the twenty-three stories in this collection have a common thread holding them together - the unusual theme of the male as victim.

Some are written by names that need no introduction - Premchand, Rabindranath Tagore, and Sa'adat Hasan Manto - while others speaks in fresh, distinctive voices.

The Muffled Heart, with its startling insights into the plight of the disempowered male, questions conventional perspectives on the supposedly privileged gender of Indian patriarchal society.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
