Chekhovian, greater praise than which there is none. Each story is about love. ( )

Not sure why these languished for so long on the bedside table, constantly set aside. The stories are very good but not grabbing. The satirical ones are best, esp. the ones with gurus but what I've found to be typical Jhabvala, the enigmatic ending, is every present.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671642219, Paperback)

Chosen by The New York Times Book Review as one of the best books of 1986, this volume of stories, selected by the author from her own early work, represents the essence of her Indian experience. Bearing Jhabvala's hallmark of balance, subtlety, wry humor, and beauty, these stories present characters that prove to be as vulnerable to the contradictions and oppressions of the human heart as to those of India itself.
