Pudumaippittan

 
Lakshmi Holmstrom (Editor) Lakshmi Holmstrom (Translator)
Synopsis Transforming the literary scenario of Tamil delighted Pudumaippittan. He wrote stories that were filled with irony and the telling word, with what Umberto Eco calls the " calculated rhythm and shrewd manipulation of effect that pushes writing over the line that divides deep literature from light fiction." Katha celebrates the new outburst of interest in Pudumaippittan, with this first translation of his best literary works by Lakshmi Holmstrom.
