Description

Balcão Tales is a collection of twenty-six stories, shortlisted from the entries in English, Konkani, Marathi and Portuguese, received for the Fundação Oriente Short Story Competition 2019. With five successful editions, this competition aims to foster literary production and celebrate Goa’s cultural and linguistic diversity.

This anthology invites you to step into the balcão, a place that dwells between the intimacy of domestic life, and the scrutiny of public perception, and where most of the narratives about Goa are conceived. The balcão is, ultimately, a privileged location to experience a slice of Goan life in its many dimensions.

Identity and belonging, love, betrayal, friendship, hypocrisy, gender violence, poverty, class, religion, sexuality, and migration: these are some of the themes that the stories in this collection talk about. They open our eyes to worlds old and new, both within and beyond us.
