My Lawfully Wedded Husband & Other Stories (Westland-Tranquebar, 2013) is a collection of black humour short stories: stories that have a hint (or more) of the macabre in them. A young girl, visiting her grandmother in Goa, witnesses the dramatic end of a romance. A passenger on a night train is told about a long-ago tragedy. A bored housewife cheats on her lawfully wedded husband. Some of these stories are more dark than the others; some are more humorous than not.
