Journal Entry 1 by dolph1n from Chester, Cheshire United Kingdom on Sunday, October 02, 2011
Set in contemporary India, Love and Longing in Bombay confirms Vikram Chandra as one of today's most exciting young writers. In five haunting tales he paints a remarkable picture of Bombay - its ghosts, its passions, its feuds, its mysteries - while exploring timeless questions of the human spirit. 'When Midnight's Children first arrived on the scene, it became necessary to revaluate stories from and about India.

I took 9 books to the book swap event in town and brought 7 back, this was one of them.

A collection of short stories set in Bombay. None of these stories were amazing but some were better than others. Shakti, Kama and Artha were my favourite, the other two are pretty forgettable.

I didn't realise this would be short stories when I put it on my wishlist, I'm not a fan of short stories to be honest!
