The Nude: Collected Stories
The Nude: Collected Stories
Description
Back of the Book

‘Some women should never wear clothes-clothes that hide the shape and colour of their flesh and skin…’

In the title story, Robie is looking for a model for a nude he has to paint, when he is introduced to Mrs Oliver by his friend Turner. When he sees her, he is disappointed at how utterly unsuited she is as a subject for the kind of painting he has in mind. However, when she poses, he realizes that some women look best in the nude.

Bhima cheats on her devoted husband Madhu but is in for a rude shock in ‘The Silver Anklets’ and a man dies trying to induce in his son ‘A Taste of Blood’ and make him a ‘real’ man. A police officer, caught in a storm in the Garhwal hills, takes refuge in the temple of ‘The Alabaster Goddess’ and achieves an unexpected breakthrough in an old investigation. Vanilla fudge and Mr. Krishna’s death are cause for much jubilation for two little girls in ‘Happiness is a Box of Fudge’.

Written in lucid prose and set in the most ordinary situations, the nineteen stories in The Nude are fascinating snapshots of life that chart some of the most basic and most intricate human emotions.

Praise for Nergis Dalal

‘An unsparing examination of marriage, displacement and the many small compromises that make up life, the Girls from Overseas shines with wit and intelligence’-The Tribune.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
