Thirst of a Minstrel: The Life and Times of Ganesh Pyne
Thirst of a Minstrel: The Life and Times of Ganesh Pyne
Description
From the Jacket:

Ganesh Pyne is the subject of a raging controversy: Is he really a recluse who shuns the media, avoids the opening of his own exhibitions and withholds his paintings from international auction houses like Sotheby's and Christie's? Or is he just impossibly arrogant?

His detractors find his art out of sync with reality. Yet, the world regards him as one of the greatest painters of the day, and his works, covered by celebrities, sell at astronomical prices.

Sifting the truth from hype and mere concoction, Shiladitya Sarkar explores the mysteries behind the myth, the art behind the legend. And what he comes up with is an intriguing modern-day fairytale, featuring an artist who rose from rags and anonymity to riches and fame, but continues to spurn the crown he has earned through a lifetime of tribulations.

About the Author:

Born in 1969, Shiladitya Sarkar is the graduate of Presidency College, Kolkata. Having completed a Master's degree in Political Science, he worked as a journalist, contributing investigative and feature articles, first as staff of Indian Express and later, as commissioned writer for different publications including The Times of India and the Telegraph.

He currently writes on contemporary painting in the premiere magazine, Art India.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
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!
Chitra, United Kingdom
