The first substantive English translation of the Gujarati short story pioneer, Dhumketu (1892–1965.) The first book-length translation from Gujarati to English published in the US.

“Dhumketu is a wonderfully gripping storyteller . . . Bhatt has certainly done him justice in this excellent selection.” ~JENNIFER CROFT, translator of The Books of Jacob by Olga Tokarczuk

“The translator . . . follows each dip and tremor in the narrative flow with practised ease and linguistic flair . . .” ~N KALYAN RAMAN, translator of The Story of a Goat by Perumal Murugan

“. . . a love letter to the power of art and the human spirit . . . These stories invite readers to rediscover the wonder in the quotidian.” ~KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Complex characters, vibrant imagery, and descriptions of rural Gujarat State bolster each of the stories. Readers are in for a treat.” ~PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
