Fascinating Stories: Bibhutibhusan Bandyopadhyay
Description
Back of the Book

Bibhutibhusan Bandyopadhyay (1894-1895) is recognised today as one of the most significant novelists of the post-Tagorean period. Besides novels of enduring quality such as Pather Panchali, Aparajita and Aranyak, he has given us stories of varied range and quality. All his writings are marked by a sense of pity for the deprived and the humble.

The stories presented here bring to life the face of Bengal as it was at the beginning of the 20th century. In thes3e stories the reader will meet the poverty and the attraction of the quiet countryside-the gentry, the peasants, the women-folk and the boys of a close knit society. Perhaps he will also "share the happiness of the Truant boys roaming about the fields in gay abandon in a glorious summer morning in Bengal". Here are some stories involving ghosts and spirits, which had a stronger appeal when they were written about half a century ago than they do in this electronic age. Some stories are set in the city of Kolkata where the author had been a school teacher for many years.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
