This is a collection of captivating stories — each different from the other in theme, background, and presentation.
“The Inner Face”, juxtaposing a rich, arrogant woman with a simple, innocent flower selling girl is so different from “The Apartment” in which a buyer finds to his dismay that neither the walls nor the roof belongs to him, leaving him to hang in an empty space. In “Omen”, a bus runs amok to kill a young man in a way exactly foreseen in a dream, but in “Tail Lamps”, a happily-sozzled man follows a car on a rainy night to land up in the wrong house.
There are twenty-eight stories, each with a varied plot woven in an exciting labyrinth guaranteed to hold the interest of the reader until its spellbinding finish. No lover of literature can put down Familiar Strangers once he starts reading the stories.
