Summary A woman grieves a miscarriage, haunted by the Buddha's birth. An artist with schizophrenia tries to survive hatred and indifference in small-town India by turning to the beauty of sculpture and dance. A brief but intense affair between two women culminates in regret and betrayal. In seventeen remarkable stories, Chaya Bhuvaneswar spotlights diverse women of color--cunning, bold, and resolute--facing sexual harassment and racial violence, and occasionally inflicting that violence on each other.Winner of the 2017 Dzanc Short Story Collection Prize, White Dancing Elephants marks the emergence of a new voice exploring feminist, queer, religious and immigrant stories. --back cover
