'Yes, there was a skeleton in the cupboard, and although I never saw it, I played a small part in the events that followed its discovery ...This brilliant new collection of stories by one of India's best-loved storytellers richly evokes Dehradun of the 1940s, with its quaint cinema halls and crumbling villas, its modest chaat-shops and ubiquitous tongas. But, as young Ruskin - the narrator in these interconnected tales - soon discovers, not all is as it seems in this sleepy town. Behind the tranquil facade, Dehra is home to a cast of colourful characters: from plucky old women to possible murderers. 'The Canal' is a joyful tribute to adolescent mischief and adult resolve, in which a group of roguish boys must face the consequences of antagonizing the much-feared Miss Gamla. 'Over the Wall' celebrates the resilience and hard-won dignity of a man ravaged by leprosy as he struggles to come to terms with his malady. The dashing young army captain in 'At Green's Hotel' might be the perfect gentleman - or a murderer. And in 'The Skeleton in the Cupboard', an old scandal is revived following a chance discovery, leading to wholly unexpected results.
