Masterji And Other Stories
A collection of charming and idiosyncratic stories about the emotional 'landscape'of the subcontinent, as seen through the eyes of an ex-pat visitor. The outspoken candour of the stories will utterly disarm the reader. As an interface between cultures, the book explores the quests and aspirations of life with sensitivity and empathy. This photographic journal of life in urban India manages to break through barriers of language and culture in affirmation of the common humanity of its protagonists. The clamour and contradictions of life amidst the heat and dust of India with its complex social stratification, its betrayals and epiphanies is documented with clear-eyed humour and a deep compassion.
About the Author
Maura Moynihan - poet, artist, actress, singer and songwriter - first visited India in the early seventies when her father, Senator Daniel P. Moynihan, served as the United States ambassador to India. Ever since, she has been deeply involved with the people of the Indian subcontinent, as well as with conditions in Tibet. In 1997, she testified before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which helped increase congressional humanitarian aid to the Tibetan refugees. She has acted in several films, including Merchant-Ivory productions, The Bostonians and Slaves of New York. She wrote/performed with the comedy duo Moynihan and Green, which had several long-running engagements in New York, and has appeared on many television shows. This is Maura's first collection of short stories.
