The Walls of Delhi

Author(s): Uday Prakash

General Fiction

A sweeper discovers a cache of black money and escapes to see the Taj Mahal with his underage mistress. An untouchable races to reclaim his life stolen by an upper-caste identity thief. A slum baby's head gets bigger and bigger as he gets smarter and smarter, while his family tries to find a cure. Gifted storyteller Uday Prakash tells three stinging and comic tales of living and surviving in today's globalised India. One of India's most original and audacious writers, the India that Prakash presents in his fiction is much different from what one generally finds in English-language writing by South Asian writers. Prakash portrays realities about caste and class, and there is a charming and compelling authenticity in his stories that is sometimes absent from other fiction about South Asia.
