My Father Drank My Lover and Other Stories

Author: Ashok K. Banker
Publisher: Pan Macmillan

Award Category: Creative Writing in English (Fiction & Poetry)
About the Book: 

An eclectic collection of short stories inspired by mythology, fantasy, sci-fi and the paranormal.
A bag travels the universe looking for evil, bigoted civilizations to consume. The machinations of a dark and terrible goddess lead to unexpected outcomes. A girl child is married off in a technologically advanced dystopic world steeped in prejudice and intolerance. A desperate mother tries to bring her children back to nature from a digital existence.

In each of these stories and more, Ashok Banker assaults the senses through shock and awe. Exploring overarching themes of love, feminism, equality and social justice, these eleven refreshingly original works of
imagination are powerful, dark and haunting.

Published in a collection for the first time in India, the tales are macabre yet stunning, honest parables of our world.
