The Nude: Collected Stories
The Nude: Collected Stories
Description
Back of the Book

‘Some women should never wear clothes-clothes that hide the shape and colour of their flesh and skin…’

In the title story, Robie is looking for a model for a nude he has to paint, when he is introduced to Mrs Oliver by his friend Turner. When he sees her, he is disappointed at how utterly unsuited she is as a subject for the kind of painting he has in mind. However, when she poses, he realizes that some women look best in the nude.

Bhima cheats on her devoted husband Madhu but is in for a rude shock in ‘The Silver Anklets’ and a man dies trying to induce in his son ‘A Taste of Blood’ and make him a ‘real’ man. A police officer, caught in a storm in the Garhwal hills, takes refuge in the temple of ‘The Alabaster Goddess’ and achieves an unexpected breakthrough in an old investigation. Vanilla fudge and Mr. Krishna’s death are cause for much jubilation for two little girls in ‘Happiness is a Box of Fudge’.

Written in lucid prose and set in the most ordinary situations, the nineteen stories in The Nude are fascinating snapshots of life that chart some of the most basic and most intricate human emotions.

Praise for Nergis Dalal

‘If you like a good old-fashioned story with a strong plot, firmly etched out characters, and a gentle style, then pick up [Skin Deep]’-Business World, Kolkata.

‘An unsparing examination of marriage, displacement and the many small compromises that make up life, the Girls from Overseas shines with wit and intelligence’-The Tribune.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
