Ruskin Bond s Potpourri is a collection of his choicest stories from his treasure trove. Covering an array of themes horror, romance, humour, crime, and mystery? These tales from the undisputable master storyteller form an eclectic blend in this book. Bond presents an evocative and affectionate memoir of vignettes of life in Mussoorie and other places he has visited, and introduces us to a rich cast of characters? His family, friends, and those who have left a lasting impression on him.
The stories with their diverse themes and flavours try to paint a realistic portrait of life, peppered as it is with multiple hues. As such, it condenses the pleasure of almost ten books in one. While he said It with Arsenic lends a wicked touch, Love and Cricket adds a dash of romance to the compilation; The Overcoat takes us on a supernatural trip, while The Girl on the Train, with its sudden twists, snaps us out of our humdrum existence.
