A Walk through Hasan’s World in A Day in the Life

Anjum Hasan is the author of three novels-The Cosmopolitans (shortlisted for the Crossword Book Award), Neti Neti (shortlisted for the Hindu Best Fiction Award) and Lunatic in My Head (shortlisted for the Crossword Book Award)-as well as a book of short stories. Her latest, A Day in the Life, has quixotic nonconformists in small towns and young newly-weds trying to keep up with the times; a forlorn retiree helpless in the face of contemporary anger and a middle-class woman’s bond with her maid. With fourteen well-crafted stories, Hasan gives us a sense of the daily life of a wide cast of characters.
Let’s walk through some of her stories.
