Ruskin Bond is the most addictive and entertaining writer in modern Indian literature. The author of over a hundred novels and short-story collections, his fiction is especially celebrated for the unforgettable misfits, dreamers, small-time con artists, rapscallions, thieves and drifters who populate it. For the first time ever, A Gallery of Rascals brings together the most memorable rogues to feature in Ruskin Bond’s fiction. A few brand new stories—‘A Man Called Brain’, ‘Sher Singh and the Hot-water Bottle’, ‘Crossing the Road’— headline this collection and rub shoulders with much-loved tales like ‘The Thief’s Story’, ‘The Boy Who Broke the Bank’, ‘Tigers for Dinner’ and ‘A Case for Inspector Lal’. Thrilling and effortlessly readable, the thirty stories in this book show exactly why Ruskin Bond’s fiction is irresistible.
