Meet the enchanting and chaat-loving singer Gracie, for whom the narrator develops a one-sided affection; the delinquent youth, Sunil, with whom he forges an unlikely friendship; little Bisnu, who faces-off a man-eater that has claimed many in the village; and the lively West Indian, George. The novella is a favourite of Ruskin Bond, and this collection encompasses both humour and pathos. It also includes an excerpt from The Room on the Roof, for which Bond had won the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize. From the small towns of Mussourie and Dehradun to the teeming cities of Delhi and London, Calypso Christmas takes you to people and places you will remember long after the book is read..
