From the publisher

A stunning collection of short stories from the author of Sojourn and Friend of My Youth

Set across Bombay and Calcutta, Amit Chaudhuri’s stories range from a divorcee about to enter into an arranged marriage to a teengaed poet who develops a relationship with a lonely widower, from a singing teacher struggling to make a living out of the boredom of his students to gauche teenager desperate to hurdle past his adolescence.

Rich with subtlety, elegance and deep feeling, Real Time is classic Chaudhuri.
