Twenty five stories handpicked here by the author are from a wide range of choice. Every story has a grip of its own, some of them very moving like Father Samuel, Silent prayer for Runi or the youngest daughter; others eerie and mysterious like True of false? Yayati, The story of the absentee or The dream peddler and yet others loaded with pathos like Museum, The bird of passage. A subtler form of love oozes out of stories like At midnight today or The woman with a hunchback. In fact any story can be chosen for a treat.TRANSLATORASHOK K MOANTY (B 1951) is a critic and translator. He is the professor of Finance in the Department of Business Administration in Berhampur University.
