Description

This work celebrates the new outburst of interest in Pudumaippittan, with this first translation of his best literary works by Lakshmi Holmstrom.

Transforming the literary scenario of Tamil delighted Pudumaippittan. He wrote stories that were filled with irony and the telling word, with what Umberto Eco calls the calculated rhythm and shrewd manipulation of effect that pushes writing over the line that divides deep literature from light fiction.
