Nor could the author have written with such confident realism were he not drawing on his own picaresque adventures, in his native South India and beyond." "Dandin's book is also distinguished by its worldly themes. Real men and women find themselves in a variety of predicaments, from the naturalistic to the fantastic. Morality competes against satire, magic assists cynical stratagems, and ideal love is married with eroticism. The ten stories culminate in the young men's experienced wisdom and world domination."--Jacket." ;
