The Novels of Amit Chaudhuri: An Exploration in the Alternative Tradition

Sheobhushan Shukla (Editor) Anu Shukla (Editor)
Synopsis Amit Chaudhuri, a young, delightful and brilliant contemporary writer has been acclaimed worldwide for his novels, A Strange and Sublime Address, Afternoon Raag, Freedom Song and A New World besides his collection of short stories Real Time and an anthology of Indian writing The Picador Book of Modern Indian Literature. A winner of coveted and prestigious awards like the first prize in Betty Trask Award, Commonwealth Writers Prize and Encore Award, he is essentially a poet who is well grounded in the best literary traditions of both the East and the West. With his roots deep in Indian culture and literature, he could not be shaken by the west wind of postcoloniality and postmodernity and has been making a serious endeavour to explore in an alternative tradition in Indian writing in English. This first full length study of Amit Chaudhuri's novels offers a text-based and as well as theory-based comprehensive critical insight into them through various and even contrarious strategies by some of the most celebrated academics and scholars. It is hoped that the present volume would induce love and admiration for the high literary achievements of Amit Chaudhuri and would be the starting point for further studies like this.
