Description

With an introduction by Mahasweta Devi herself, this book, translated from original Bengali, contains four of her most powerful stories - all set in Palamau.

As she says in her introduction, 'My Palamau is a mirror of India'. These harsh, hard-hitting pieces are, in her own words, amongst the most important of her prolific writing career. Written in the eighties, they resonate with anger against the exploitation she witnessed firsthand, and the complacent hypocrisy of the upper castes and classes.
