EDITED AND TRANSLATED BY : Mitra Phukan
GENRE : TRANSLATION
QUICK TAKE: This anthology spans more than a century of work by some of the finest writers of short fiction in the language.
Among the gems to be found in this selection are Lakhminath Bezbaroa’s ‘Patmugi’ which is a searing portrayal of the injustices of society, especially towards women; Mamoni Raisom Goswami’s ‘Values’, an unforgettable depiction of a destitute woman, for whom her Brahmin ancestry is the only thing that she can take pride in; Harekrishna Deka’s ‘The Captive’, a poignant account of the relationship between a kidnapper and his victim; Homen Borgohain’s well-known story ‘Looking for Ismael Sheikh’, which deals with the effects of religious violence on a community; and Sheelabhadra’s ‘Sweet Acacia’, a romance as evocative as the delicate fragrance of the flower that permeates it.
Selected and edited by Mitra Phukan, these and the other stories in this volume offer a fascinating glimpse of a culture and a people that will resonate with readers everywhere.
