Ruskin Bond is one of India’s favourite writers. He has been writing for over five decades, and his repertoire is impressive—poetry to non-fiction, he seems to have written it all.
What makes Bond loved and admired is his simple narrative style which draws you in and takes you on a walk along with him past streams, mountains and the odd city road. There’s so much to see and admire, beauty even in the smallest wayside weed.
The books reviewed here are all collections. I Was the Wind Last Night is a collection of poems, Unhurried Tales is a collection of his novellas and A Time for All Things is a collection of essays and sketches.
