Annie Zaidi combines reportage with a personal narrative that goes into places we may know of but very rarely visit. However it is the stories of humble folk-tortured by hunger, discriminated against for reasons of caste, or gender-that linger.

Review: Known Turf: Bantering with Bandits and Other True Tales

User Review  - Radharani - Goodreads

I enjoyed the book very much because of its insight into the lives of simple people who are discriminated against and who suffer from India's social problems. As a journalist, Ms Zaidi has first hand experiences with such problems and she was able to portray them in a heartfelt way. Read full review

User Review  - Esther Cabral - Goodreads

Heartwarming compilation of stories from across India. Gives an insight into the rural part of this country, the part more urbanites don't know and fail to comprehend. A must read. Read full review
