River of Flesh

Kvinnefronten anbefaler!
Ruchira Gupta har samlet en antologi om prostituerte kvinner i indisk litteratur, 21 historier fra 14 forskjellige språk. Denne er verdt å få med seg! 
Gloria Steinem om boka: “Across regions, religions, and twelve languages, these stories uniformly reveal the entrenched inequalities that force women into prostitution, their desire to liberate themselves, the demorilizing conditions that they are forced to endure and the remarkable strngt with wich they transcend their exploitation – sometimes through death and murder and sometimes through hope and fortitude”
Mahasweta Devi om boka: “Whether Manto or Chughtai; Premchand, Kamala Das or Kamleshwar.. all describe the life and struggles of prostituted women as violent, lonely and full of relentless exploitation and abuse. A must-read for those who want to understand the absence of choice among those who are poor, female and low-caste”
