Cosmopolitan Summary


Cosmopolitan: Faber Stories by Akhil Sharma

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles. As he stood up, he suddenly felt aroused by Mrs Shaw's large breasts, boy's haircut, and little-girl sneakers. Even her nostrils suggested a frank sexuality. Gopal wanted to put his hands on her waist and pull her toward him. And then he realized that he had. Gopal Maurya's wife has left him, preferring to seek enlightenment in an ashram in India. But when his neighbour comes to borrow his lawnmower, Gopal thinks he might find something similar right here in New Jersey. Armed with Cosmopolitan magazine as his bible, he embarks on a quest for suburban romance. Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
