  • Anita Desai is one of the greats of the modern short story ... The whole collection breathes old-style quality

    Phil Baker, The Sunday Times
  • To compare Anita Desai's fiction with that of Chekhov or the short stories of Tolstoy is not extravagant; it is entirely warranted

    Irish Times
  • All her stories are full of a confidence in human nature that is a rarity and a pleasure to encounter

  • Anita Desai is one of the most brilliant and subtle writers ever to have described the meeting of eastern and western culture
