Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
A powerful curiosity is the hallmark of new kind of Indian writing: important questions about the country's past and present have found their expression in different forms of non-fiction story-telling that twenty years ago tended to be preserve of richer societies in the west. Biography, memoir, narrative history, reportage, the travel account: all these forms now have their interesting and original practitioners in India. In this Granta issue they tackle questions ranging from rape in the paddy fields of Bengal to the end of the Delhi intelligentsia. And there is room, as always, for the best of India's fiction.
