[EAN: 9781400077953], [PU: Anchor], Fiction|Short Stories (single author), This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Here's a collection of stories that deepens as it goes along. It offers a worldCatholic Indiapleasingly unfamiliar to most American readers, and perhaps to many Indian readers as well. Readers of any stripe will find, however, the familiar virtues for which we keep returning to short stories: empathy, breadth, the joys in paced concealment and revelation. And there is as well a sharp ear for a fine phrase ("bravado nearly as sustaining as courage," "face scrubbed clear of any expression but acquiescence"), which brings some of the music of poetry to the patient observations of the fiction writer." Brad Leithauser "Jones turns phrases with a lyrical lilt that taps into our deepest feelings about family. But her greatest gift is in how she evokes the heightened psychic states of children. . .What You Call Winteris a momentous debut, a bewitching exploration of what it means to belong, anywhere." Elle "A debut collection of intertwined short stories set in India and America. . . Jones brings the narrative skill of a seasoned writer to this work. She is best at evoking the fearful lonesomeness of alienation, whether it is in the mind of a child observing what he cannot understand, or in the heart of a mother who cannot stop change." Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Nalini Jones writes about the marginal community of Christians in Bombay and the neighborhoods in which they live. To the outsider, these seem to possess a fabled calm, but the insider knows they are in many ways on the brink of dissolution. Jones combines the outsider's wonder with an insider's shrewdness, and walks the line between the two with genuine intelligence and skill: she's a terrific writer." Amit Chaudhuri "How does she do it? A child, a family, a household, a community, a faith, an eraand suddenlyWhat You Call Winteris so much more than the sum of its parts. Delightful and deeply moving, here are nine elegantly interconnected tales which introduce a world new in American fiction. The eye is keen, the voice is intimate, and Nalini Jones has made an important debut." Dave King, author ofThe Ha-Ha "An auspicious debut. . . Jones displays impressive scope and depth of sympathy in her first collection. . . the opening story is a gem." Publishers Weekly "These stories come into the ear and eye with the bright clarity of the best fairy-tales; they're also addictively real and true. I love this book. I love its stories one by one, and I love the way they are linked to make a natural whole." John Casey "Nalini Jones stories twine round each other in a rich exploration of time and place, in a particular town, Santa Clara, in post-colonial India.The family inWhat You Call Winteris devout in its Catholic heritage, its culture within their country's culture carried on in English. The reader may have a sense that we've not been here before, but perhaps we have for Jones' beautifully crafted stories recall Chekov's plays with their moving portrayal of the sorrows and steady belief of those who stay; the trials and accommodations of those who go away. At times the visits back to India are heartbreaking in their revelations; at other times amusing in their presumption of the better life abroad. Much like Eudora Welty's extraordinary collection of stories,The Golden Apples,time unfolds in these stories from the Edenic garden of childhood to the broken lives and the salvaged hopes of those who endure.&q

Composed of interconnected stories that move within and around a small Catholic community in India, this debut collection heralds the arrival of a graceful, sparkling new voice. Nine-year-old Marian Almeida covets the green dress her parents have set aside for her birthday, but when her desire gets the best of her, dangerous events ensue. Roddy D'Souza sees his long-dead father bicycling down the street, and wonders if his own life is nearing its close. Essie, having sent her son to boarding school, weighs his unhappiness against the opportunities his education will provide. With empathy and poise, Nalini Jones creates in "What You Call Winter" a spellbinding work of families in an uncertain world. What You Call Winter Jones, Nalini, Anchor Books
