Annie Zaidi writes across several genres including reportage, fiction, drama and film. She is the author of 'Gulab', 'Love Stories # 1 to 14 ' and 'Known Turf: Bantering with Bandits and Other True Tales', which was short-listed for the prestigious Vodafone Crossword Book Awards (non-fiction, 2010). She is also co-author of 'The Good Indian Girl', a series of inter-linked narratives that trace young women's lives and liberties. She has recently edited 'Unbound: 2000 Years of Indian Women's Writing' , an anthology of select extracts from significant texts written by Indian women cutting across language, genre and era.
