Description

Arguably one of the most powerful and versatile prose writers that Bengal has produced, Samaresh Basu was a controversial writer during his lifetime: highly praised by a section of society, and vilified for obscenity by another. Called the Prince of Bengali literature, Samaresh Basu, in his writing, explored relationships and the sub-conscious desires that drove people with dramatic density, lyricism and vividness.

Included in this volume are translations of a collection of carefully chosen stories illustrating some of his principal themes, including famous stories such as Pari (The Crossing) and Uratiya (the Wrestlers) on which the well-known and award-winning films Paar (directed by Gautam Ghosh) and Uttara (directed by Buddhadeb Dasgupta) were based.
