Gatehouse New Fictions #1: Kumkum Malhotra - a novella by Preti Taneja

Look how we disappear: from a family, from a life, from a story.

In a small house in Nizamudin, Kumkum Malhotra prepares herself for the evening ahead. Then an accident calls Kumkum down. As she breaks a circle of boys, her carefully planned evening unravels and with it, her sense of self.

In language whose very precision seems a structural edifice for Kumkum's survival, Preti Taneja tells a familiar tale with startling freshness and an original, exacting style.
