New Delhi, Mar 24 (PTI) An anthology of 14 stories rooted in Assam explores love, identity, politics and fantasy, and also offers a fresh take on an age-old fairy tale of the state.

Ten of the stories in "A Fistful of Moonlight: Stories From Assam" were part of the Write Assamese project, a collaboration between Untold Narratives CIC and BEE Books supported by the British Council, and their writers were selected from an open call for submissions from across Assam.

The anthology has been edited by Mitra Phukan, Arunava Sinha and Lucy Hannah and published by BEE Books.
