Description
Life histories have a wide, if not universal, appeal, but what does it mean to narrate the story of a life—whether one's own or someone else's? Which lives are worth telling, and who should be authorized to tell them? The essays here consider such questions through examples of biographies, autobiographies, diaries, and oral stories from India. Their subjects range from literary authors to housewives, politicians to folk heroes, and they describe women and men, the young and the old, the learned and the illiterate.

"This book serves as a window into the rich and revealing lives and self-representations of the particular individuals who have produced the life histories. In so doing, it makes very important broader points about the use of life histories in social science research in general and in the study of South Asian social-cultural life in particular." —Sarah Lamb
