Phoenix Fled (Hosain)
Hot on the heels of reading Sunlight on a broken column, I acquired the other VMC by Hosain, Phoenix fled. This is a book of short stories, which were Hosain's first published work.
The stories are set in India and shed light on the class system and the role of the servant classes. And issues like arranged marriage. Reasonably enjoyable but not as memorable as the longer novel.
Published just once with an original green cover.
