Eating Women, Telling Tales PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Eating Women, Telling Tales free pdf In "Eating Women, Telling Tales," acclaimed feminist writer and artist Bulbul Sharma explores the many roles--some perennial, some unexpected--that food can play in women's lives. One of the stories in this rich collection features a young woman who, neglected by her rakish husband, decides to kill him by overfeeding him. Other tales narrate the adventures of a woman who cooks manically- a woman who tries and fails to share her culinary masterpieces with a son newly returned from the United Sates- and a woman who takes money and knickknacks from her husband's pockets, where she finds the different scents of each woman he has been with.
These protagonists, all gloriously flawed, inspire sympathy, laughter, and sometimes awe. By turns poignant and macabre, their stories make up a delicious spread, showcasing Sharma's immense talent for depicting the drama and complexity of women's everyday lives. Devoured by readers the world over after their original publication in 2009, these stories are now available in a handsomely designed reissue celebrating Zubaan's tenth anniversary.
