We meanderMoreFiction. Asian Studies. From crumbling shops in Chinatown to decaying tanneries in Tangra, Kwai-yun Lis collection of linked short stories expose us to the sights, sounds, and smells of a marginalized community in post-colonial Calcutta.

We meander into Wongs Shoe Shop, where a mother arranges a marriage for her six-year-old daughter. We stop at a school for girls, where the principal singles out students who have large breasts for punishment. We pause by a temple guarded by a billy goat where family drama rages. We rally with politicians while the monsoon rain drenches us. We relax under waving palms while the setting sun shimmers over the surface of the Tangra fish ponds. Kwai-yun Lis sensitivity and quirky sense of humour will keep us wanting to return to the ghetto, again and again.
