The End of The World

 400.00

“What makes The End of the World stand out as a collection of short stories is Joshi’s masterful and elegant use of language. … a confident debut collection for Joshi, in which the deceptively simple exterior of her prose peels away to reveal multiple layers of investigation into human longing and emptiness.” –The Kathmandu Post

“A sadhu predicts the end of the world. As the East and the West come together, a young boy longs to taste cheese. A monsoon thunderstomm awakens memories of a Hood. A young man retums from India and encounters the new Buddha, And a hungry policeman steals some vegetables. Amidst desire, longing and the awareness of suffering, these stories ask the common question: What is the nature of existence? Why do we suffer? Can we ever fulfill the hunger of the human heart?”
