Description for River of Flesh and Other Stories: The Prostituted Woman in Indian Short Fiction


‘This collection represents a multitude of voices of prostitutes across the subcontinent and sometimes the voices of people who crossed paths with them or loved them’.—Raiot

‘River of flesh’ has a panoramic and empathetic collection of stories that successfully demonstrate the pain, the torture, the horror and the trauma of a prostitute’.—Raiot

Together the stories trigger a broad range of emotions—most make you angry, yes, but others make you laugh and then cry. They are a work of fiction, but they bring together some of the best examples of Indian writing that addressed sex-trafficking.
