Father Gabriel's Crypt
Look Inside the Book
Description
Back of the Book

In most of his novelettes for young readers, Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay (b.1935), one of the major figures in contemporary Bengali fiction, tells the story of a teenager discovering himself in his encounters with forces of both good and evil, including bullies and hoodlums, sometimes a golden-hearted thief taking pride in his professional skill, and benevolent ghosts! Father Gabriel’s Crypt, the first of these work to be translated into English, has a mix of adventure, suspense, fun and whimsy rarely so well combined.

Even as children’s literature becomes globalized, Thema launches a series of Indian children’s classics in translation, each of them rooted in the culture and sensibility and experience of a particular region of the country, offering young readers in other regions rare insights into the lives and feelings of the children of that region, opening up the possibility of a fraternization of young people beyond geographical borders and barriers of language.
