Dirty Love by Sampurna Chattarji

Category: Short Stories
Publisher: Penguin Random House India

It is hard for me to say the word “stench” when I speak of her, my love . . .’ The stories in Dirty Love are set in the restless swirl of a Bombay where dream-shuttles speed through the rain and men fall prey to dirty love. Reeking of sewers, fish markets, slaughtered meat, and peopled with loners, misfits and drifters, these tales prise open the surface of everyday existence.
