Real Time

Real Time


Amit Chaudhuri's stories range from a divorcée about to enter into an arranged marriage to a teenaged poet who develops a relationship with a lonely widower, from a singing teacher struggling to make a living out of the boredom of his students to a gauche teenager desperate to hurdle past his adolescence. Ripe with subtlety, elegance and deep feeling, this is vintage Chaudhuri.
