Howling at the moon, slitting a vein, cyber sex?there are only so many ways to cope with private hells. In high-rise solitude, modern man has begun to redefine his need for society. A hundred voices are trapped in his cell phone, but there?s no head upon his pillow. Aching for love and teal Jimmy Choos, the spirit is calling out, no, not to the dead, but the living. Here in these twenty-something tales are the things that go bump in the mind. Flinging away stereotypes, first-time author Shinie Antony has listed uterine woes with a dark and biting humour. She won a Commonwealth Broadcasting Association story writing prize in 2001 for the surreal Somewhere in Gujarat, a translated version of which appeared in the Malayala Manorama on Oct 18, 2001, and is in the present collection as Munnu. This is her first book of short stories. She worked in Kochi, Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai with The Indian Skeptic, Mid-Day, The Economic Times and The Financial Express.
