This has been my first foray into Tamil Literature and what better way than the short story route spanning nine decades (1913-2000) and 88 short story stalwarts writing in Tamil. Indeed its amazing that Tamil literature has such a treasure trove of authors writing in the short story form.
This anthology, surely a laborious deeply researched collection (it took them over 6 yrs to put it together and translate) represents truly "Tamil life in all its manifestations and resplendence". To compile this anthology, Dilip Kumar searched extensively through Tamil publications, looking at little-known magazines, out-of-print books, contemporary literary journals, and anthologies of both popular and literary fiction. It highlights various social concerns prevalent throughout the decades, the lives of men and women in living in various strata of society and shows how various writers have exploited and mastered this form in their own way.
A must read for anyone interested in Tamil Literature (there cannot be a better one I am convinced) and a book to treasure indeed.
