About the Book :

The imaginative writing from Frost Bites takes us on a swift and urbanely witty Canadian-Indian tour of uprooted lives and dreams, love lost and rediscovered, kindly strangers, failed marriages, child abuse, addictions, secrets and lies, where nothing appears like it is on the surface.
Cynical, at times provocative, eye-opening, original, amusing and unforgettable, and set in the cities of Toronto, Vancouver and Delhi, Punjab, Mumbai and Goa. Here are twelve short stories that entertain, provoke and reveal the real immigrant experience.
As Jude himself admits, “I am not a megalomaniac. I communicate with an audience, writers are essentially unseen entertainers, so I made sure that I read everyone-from Tagore to Lahiri, Desai to Mistry, Rushdie to Hamid-to find a new voice that was entirely my own...and thereafter take my reader and acquaint them with people that they have never met before.
I wanted to entertain, enthral, excite and emotionally involve my readers and tell them the kind of stories that nobody else has, or dares to...and to remember the characters in Frost Bites long after they put down the book...then like you would an old friend, re-visit them again.”
