About The Book

This Sahitya Akademi Award - winning novel Sila Nerangalil Sila Manidargal (Of Men and Moments) captures the chequered life of Ganga with sensitivity and empathy. Stumbling into sex with a millionaire playboy as an innocent teenager; ruthlessly driven out of the house; sheltered and educated by a benevolent uncle, a man of erudition with a lecherous streak; occupying a senior Government position; 'her man' Prabhu re-entering her life, now as a man of dignity, keen to see her settled in marriage; her total rejection of the idea, followed by bitterness and wantonness.

About the Author

Jayakanthan's finesse in portraying the vicissitudes of Ganga's life strikes a resonance in the reader. The novel captures the indomitable spirit of a woman of courage and discernment.

In an exceptional literary career spanning over half a century, and straddling several genres, D.Jayakanthan (1934) has written 14 novels, over 30 novellas, over 130 short stories, hundreds of essays and four 'autobiographical' works.

He has translated over 30 literary works from Tamil to English. Five collections of his articles in Tamil on literary social and development themes have been published. He is a Trustee in MOZHI Trust, a resource centre for Tamil language and culture, and of National Agro Foundation involved in rural development.
