Description

This volume includes stories by ten of the most well-known practitioners of Bengali short stories.

Measured even by the standard of excellence achieved by Bengali literature in the past one hundred, and fifty years, covering such diverse areas as poetry, fiction, drama, suspense, crime, belles-letters, and historical and psychological novels, the short story as a literary genre stands apart in a class of its own.

Several selected anthologies of short stories published in Bengali in the last two decades of the twentieth century emphasize two principal factors: firstly that the editors had to be virtually ruthless in limiting the collection, given the prodigious number of outstanding works in the pool from which the selections had to be made; secondly that of all the components of Bengali literature, it is the short story which is truly and indisputably world-class.
