Tindal Street Press, 2006 - Fiction - 110 pages
Distinguished poet and anthologist Debjani Chatterjee introduces a showcase of four authors with two captivating stories each Like a good poem, a short story quickly draws the reader in and has an impact that lingers in the mind. Also like a good poem, it pays to do more than one reading. The stories in Mango Shakewill tempt the reader to revisit them--and to look out for future work from these writers. There are eight exciting and uniquely different stories in this anthology, including tales rooted in modern-day urban culture from three young men with South Asian ethnicity, and two lyrical tales of myth and magic by a woman with a Guyanese background--tales that transport us to the warm beaches of her homeland. This anthology enriches the contemporary landscape of the short story with its own distinctive charm, sparkle, and diversity.
