In the title story, an ineffectual husband finally reaches his boiling point, 'Coinsanv's Cattle' is a heart-breaking depiction of how a farmer couple must make the impossible choice - send their beloved animals to slaughter or face starvation and, in the quietly humorous 'A Writer's Tale', a senior author becomes the unwitting subject of a woman's fiction.
Compiled with care and smoothly, felicitously translated by Xavier Cota, Teresa's Man and Other Stories from Goa brings to readers tales which are as compellingly local in their flavour as they are universal in the ideas and emotions they evoke. This volume is a must-read.
