The Shadows Return (and other stories)

Author Name: Ravi Tennety | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

A teacher who loves to discipline his students, a friend who returns to kill, a hotel that retains its guests, a wife who dreads the return of her husband, an educationalist whose spirit remains in his school, a pickpocket who finds the wrong victim, an unending flight, an actress who literally lives her role…

The Shadows Return (and other stories) is a compelling collection of short stories. They are tightly woven, haunting and inevitably carry a sting in the tail. The author races the reader to the end, and, with a deft flick, turns him around to face the way he has come. Each story is meticulously detailed and knit like a collage. The last few lines convert each painting into a hologram, where the reader is not sure what the picture really is.

Ravi Tennety

Ravi is an engineer, and received his MBA from IIM-Calcutta. 

He travels widely, picking up ideas for his stories from vignettes that catch his eye during his travels. His attention to detail and his memory of faces and mannerisms of the people he comes across add to the authenticity of his writing.

When not writing and working, Ravi spends his time on long nature walks with his German Shepherd, Shadow.

Ravi lives in Bangalore, with his wife, Dr Annapurna, and their elevenyear-old son, Jatin.
