A Wounded Tigress

Capa
Kronos Books/Bayeux Arts, 1996 - 210 páginas
A collection of six enchanting novellas of contemporary India. A surprising journey into the world of well-to-do, well-travelled, well-educated people, who are at the same time bound by ancient traditions. At the heart of each story is a young woman caught in the cross-fire of those old ways, which demand her subservience, and those of modern life, which call on her to declare her independence. Confronted with the opportunity to defy the ancient traditions, the women are faced with terrible choices. Laced with snatches of Hindu mythology, epic scripture, philosophy and poetry, A Wounded Tigress is destined to be a true classic.
