Inhaltsangabe: In eleven superbly crafted stories jahnavi barua takes us into the private, individual worlds of a varied cast of characters and exposes the intricate mesh of emotions so often concealed under the façade of everyday lives. Innocent desires and furtive longings, the complexity of fierce love and the terrible consequences of its betrayal, simple aspirations that compel brave action, life's startling reversals that reveal deep insecurities and yet pave the way for forgiveness and reconciliation-these are just some of the themes played out in these remarkably nuanced snapshots of life. Predominantly set in the verdant, politically charged landscape of assam, yet constantly transcending the particular, the stories in next door are unerringly human. Subtle and evocative in their telling, they mark the introduction of a highly accomplished voice.
