This is a collection about the people in the corners of the city, the young woman yearning for love, the certified virgin who must be married off again, the older woman and her medicines.

No Presents Please: Mumbai Stories
is not about what Mumbai is, but what it enables. Here is a city where two young people decide to elope and then start nursing dreams of different futures, where film posters start talking to each other, where epiphanies are found in keychains and thermos-flasks. From Irani cafes to chawls, old cinema houses to reform homes, Jayant Kaikini seeks out and illuminates moments of existential anxiety and of tenderness. In these sixteen stories, cracks in the curtains of the ordinary open up to possibilities that might not have existed, but for this city where the surreal meets the everyday. This translation brings the rhythms of Kannada into English with admirable efficiency.
