Read full description of the books Beyond Purdah:I haven't read Tully before, but this book appeared in my Penguin 60s little set.
Tully's two short stories are a part of a larger work. As the title suggests, the focus is on women - in particular in rural India. The first story was the stronger of the two, yet both stories are equally good.
The stories examine the role of women - first in the story of a barren woman, second in a woman who longs for tradition but than becomes nontraditional. The short Penguin book itself (with a cheap price tag) would make a good companion book to Boo's Behind the Beautiful Forevers.
Tully's use of detail (or the omission of certain key details) speaks volumes about how events and people are seen.
