Traditionally, bakers threw in the thirteenth loaf to make sure that their customers didnt feel short- changed. Readers of Bakers Dozen are likely to feel anything but that. Here are 13 stories that can make you laugh out loud, as in Madhulika Liddles St George and the Dragon, wipe away a silent tear, as in Payal Mukherjees Baani, have a shiver run down your spine, as in Sanjay Sipahimalanis In Praise of Straight Lines, enjoy the subtle eroticism of Sheba Karims Next Year at the Taj and Tishani Doshis The Delicate Predicament of Eunice De Silva, or simply revel in the pleasure of good writing in Sharanya Manivannans Greed and the Gandhi Quartet. Thirteen stories, 6 of them new emerging voices, winners of the Elle Fiction Awards, 7 from Tranquebars stable of talented writers who dont fight shy of crossing boundaries. Together, they bring you a rich and varied repast. Come to the table and enjoy the feast!
