A collection of timeless yet startlingly modern short stories by one of India's best authors, set in the colourful environment of mid-century Bombay.

Saadat Hasan Manto arrived in Bombay in the 1930s and found a metropolis unlike any other. A bustling centre of freedom and licence, a metropolis for everybody, teeming with both creative vigour and hopeless despair. Manto, a journalist, screenwriter, and editor, is best renowned for being a master of the short story, and Bombay served as his inspiration for the entirety of his life. Here are all of Manto's Bombay-based pieces, collected for the first time in English, vividly bringing to life the city's sordid underbelly—the prostitutes, pimps, and criminals that populated its streets—as well as the aspiring authors and performers who arrived searching for recognition.
