A Season of Waiting

By Indrani Raimedhi

A young wife is deeply troubled by the arrival of a mysterious woman in her home. An acclaimed writer encounters a shocking truth during an evening walk. An upscale neighborhood conspires to destroy the one who does not fit in. A woman with cancer is given a glimpse of what lies beyond. A young girl’s ordeal is met with indifference. A lonely artist is haunted by the custody of a child. In these sixteen stories, the author fashions brief and intensely compact dramas out of the unwieldy material of human experience. Indeed, nothing is what it seems.
