Tales Told to the Tooth Goddess
The foundation of this collection of stories and essays is set close to Arunachala Mountain in Tamil Nadu. The stories explore aspects of life and landscape: e.g. local culture, ecology, personal relationships, community politics, womens issues - all told from the perspective of an outsider living on the inside.
