The Telegraph
(April 24 1998)

"A splendid showcase of short stories by Indian women writers."

"After reading Separate Journeys one feels that the very diversity that differentiates the stories also loops them together, sensuously, delicately. It's like some bright colours cajoled into each and every fibre by varying hands and minds."
Indian review of Books
"The fifteen stories in this collection are of such high standard that it is difficult to choose a few to mention in a short review ... the translations are excellent ..."
