'To evaluate Anita Desai's fiction with that of Chekhov or the quick tales of Tolstoy isn't really extravagant; it really is completely warranted' Irish Times

Anita Desai is among our best and so much insightful writers. at the get together of her eightieth birthday, The whole Stories gathers jointly the quick tale collections Diamond Dust and Games at Twilight and the novellas of The Artist of Disappearance, with a brand new preface from the writer. From the icy suburbs of Canada to the overcrowded B&Bs of Cornwall, through the hill cities and towns of India, Anita Desai observes human behaviour unflinchingly yet now not unkindly, recognising our ordinariness and our strangeness, and taking pictures either with quiet precision.

'All her tales are choked with a self assurance in human nature that could be a rarity and a excitement to come across' Spectator

'Anita Desai is among the such a lot really good and sophisticated writers ever to have defined the assembly of jap and western tradition' Alison Lurie
