Ayoni and other stories

From dark dilemmas to sharp wounds. That is what this unique collection by writers spanning a century can be summed up as. The stories, unflinching in style and content, focus on women’s issues like abortion, rape, dowry and beyond. Each piece is reflective of a path-breaking vision that has altered the Telugu literary scene – in form, style and content.
