Book Summary of HUNGRY STONES AND OTHER STORIES

Tagore was the first modern Bengali short story writer. He wrote well over a hundred stories. He created stories from his own experience - love, social relationships, the correspondence between man and nature and the supernatural. This collection includes tales of mystery ('The Hungry Stones'), satirical fantasy ('The Kingdom of Cards') and lovable characters like 'The Cabulliwallah'.


One of India's most cherished renaissance figures, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) put India on the literary map of the world when his Gitanjali was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. Myriad-minded, he was a poet, short story writer, novelist, dramatist, essayist, painter and composer of songs. His worldwide acclaim as a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker, innovator in education and a champion of the 'One World' idea makes him a living presence.

Derek November 07, 2010 review from Goodreads

These stories are close to perfection, but it's a different kind of perfection than you would find in western tales. Most are immediate, intensely human, unpretentious and told in a straightforward, unadorned style: "This happened and then that happened, which led to the next thing." Yet the real...

Mel May 03, 2012 review from Goodreads

I became intrigued with Tagore after seeing an exhibit of his paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago. My western-self was painfully unaware of his existence prior to a few weeks ago. This is the first collection of writing that I picked up and will definitely be pursuing more.
