Description

This book is an English translation by K S Subramanian of Jayakanthan’s Award-winning Tamil Novel Sila Nerangalil Sila Manithargal.

This Sahitya Akademi Award - winning novel Sila Nerangalil Sila Manidargal (Of Men and Moments) captures the chequered life of Ganga with sensitivity and empathy. Stumbling into sex with a millionaire playboy as an innocent teenager; ruthlessly driven out of the house; sheltered and educated by a benevolent uncle, a man of erudition with a lecherous streak; occupying a senior Government position; ‘her man’ Prabhu re-entering her life, now as a man of dignity, keen to see her settled in marriage; her total rejection of the idea, followed by bitterness and wantonness.

Jayakanthan’s finesse in portraying the vicissitudes of Ganga’s life strikes a resonance in the reader. The novel captures the indomitable spirit of a woman of courage and discernment. In an exceptional literary career spanning over half a century, and straddling several genres, D.Jayakanthan (1934) has written 14 novels, over 30 novellas, over 130 short stories, hundreds of essays and four ‘autobiographical’ works. An iconoclast who ridiculed exploitative social norms, his works reveal a deep and nuanced understanding of society. He has won many honors and awards including Paclma Bhushan Jnanpith Award and Sahitya Akademi Award. He is a Fellow of the Sahitya Akademi.
