The publications of Dalit writers have, for at least 20 years, posed a major challenge to the way mainstream literature has been positioned and perceived. In this setting, a collection of short fiction such as this, exclusively by Tamil Dalit writers, raises a strong regional voice against the discrimination and graded inequality unique to caste-bound India. With an Introduction from P Sivakami, the distinguished Dalit writer and activist, this anthology of short stories from 14 writers feeds into the flow of influences that both shape and change the language and poetics.
