Days of Innocence – Stories for Ruskin Bond (Roli Books, 2002)

“Manju Kak’s “Birju” (sic) … is the story of a quixotic hero of her childhood. It reminds me of George and Weedon Grossmith’s The Diary of a Nobody which is like a religious testament to Ruskin Bond even today.”

Debashis Banerjee, The Statesman

Manju Kak was Consulting Editor of the Katha Prize Stories, Volume 2 (Rupa Publishers, 1992)

“Manju Kak’s “Blessed are my son’s” (nominated by Nissim Ezekiel) is filled with a humour and vitality rare in women writers. Her capacity for fantasy catapults into sympathetic understanding of the lustful impotence of a butcher, and, tangentially, into the painful circumstances of the man-woman relationship.”

Anna Sujatha Mathai, Prize Catch, Times of India

“Manju Kak’s lustful butcher professionally analysing the female flesh that strays into his field of vision is a delightful send up of male machismo.”

Alok Rai, India Today, 15 January 1993
