This collection of Unni R.’s short stories represents a quantum leap in the Indian literary imagination. Unni is a master of the interior, a fabulist of the humdrum, a saboteur of the given. Political to the core, here’s contemporary Indian short fiction at its best.’ —Paul Zacharia

‘Unni R.’s stories have drawn wide attention and praise. He has redeemed the contemporary Malayalam short story from the trap of congealed modernism. He fantasises love, he vandalises the hackneyed narrative. That’s quintessential Unni R. One Hell of a Lover culls from his oeuvre some of his best writings so far. A good read, I swear!’ —M. Mukundan

‘While staying close to the premises of rural life, Unni R.’s stories achieve a unique universal stature. Strewn across them are brilliant observations on society and a sharp commentary on micropolitics.’ —Benyamin
