Sunil Gangopadhyay (Author) Sheila Sengupta (Translator)
Synopsis This volume, a collection of ten unforgettable stories by the renowned Bengali writer Sunil Gangopadhyay, bear the hallmark of the author’s literary uniqueness in terms of content, presentation and narrative style. A master story teller, Sunil Babu’s ability to weave extraordinary tales from recent history, and in general, the life around him, has fetched him not only some of the prestigious awards of the country, but also an overwhelming popularity for more than four decades now. broadly speaking, the stories in this volume, deal with a myriad of human emotions and enguish resulting from social disparities and age old religious conflicts. In each of these stories, the reader discovers the tender humanism, the refreshing humour and that unmistakably fluid narrative style that has made Gangopadhyay one of the greatest writers of modern times.
