Title : Some of the Whole
Author : Abhijit Bhattacharya
Publisher: Pustak Mahal  (2010)

About The Book:
SOME OF THE WHOLE is a collection of 10 short stories - contemporary, Indian fiction.  
All the stories have a common thread – a mix of flash-back and current situations – the blend pushing up the curiosity level and finally finishing it with a twist that undoes all that the reader thinks while reading the initial parts of the story. Contemporary set-up (each of the stories are based in the modern, Indian metros), real-life kind of characters and situations keep the story in the realm of being REAL.

The stories: A long-distance relationship between lovers has an unexpected finish; a son comes back from the US for vacation and unearths something eerie in his hometown; a successful businessman fails in his business deal and is attacked by some goons only to find surprising benefits; a young woman in a big city falls prey to a stalker; an intimate love story with a disastrous end; a story of a serial rapist and so on and so forth.

The collection promises the readers to experience varied emotions while they read them – except for the end of each story, which would leave the reader in awe and shock.
