Book Summary of Portrait of a Lady: Collected Stories


€˜A Khushwant Singh short story is not flamboyant but modest, restrained, well-crafted €¦Perhaps his greatest gift as a writer is a wonderful particularity of description' €"London Magazine Khushwant Singh first established his reputation as a writer through the short story. His stories €"wry, poignant, erotic and, above all, human €"bear testimony to Khushwant Singh's remarkable range and his ability to create an unforgettable world. Spanning over half a century, this volume contains all the short stories Khushwant Singh has ever written, including the delightfully tongue-in-cheek €˜The Maharani of Chootiapuram', written in 2008. €˜Khushwant's stories enthrall €¦[He has]an ability akin to that of Somerset Maugham €¦the ability to entertain intelligently' €"India Today €˜His stories are better than [those of] any Indian writing in English €"Times of India €˜The Collected Short Stories leaves the reader in a delightful, inebriated trance' €"Sunday Chronicle €˜He is not an ordinary short story writer €¦[Collected Stories] is delightful reading' €"Hindustan Times
