Book Title: A Death in Delhi, Modern Hindi Short Stories
Desc:

This collection of fifteen short stories offers the best of the new writers – ranging from Amarkant to Nirmal Verma – who have revolutionized Hindi literature over the past forty years.
The modern short story in Hindi is largely a twentieth century development, distinguished especially by the work of Premchand in the first three decades of the century. The short stories in this volume take up where Premchand and his immediate successors (Yashpal, Jainendra Kumar and ‘Agyeya’) left off and offer the reader an excellent and entertaining introduction to the diversity and richness that the modern short story at its best can offer.
