AMAR PAP, A novel by Kamal Chakrabarty.
Kamal's maiden novel. A very highly rated deviant
from the trendy commercial format, Amar Pap, is a rich account of redemption
that underlines intellectual innocense and purity. The story told by a
young man, living outside Bengal, crosses the mainstream bengali social
and cultural currents that reveal the moribund, and often hipocrisy.
Sandipan Chattopadhyay writes - "I have reread less than ten bengali
novels. Amar Pap is one of them".
EK BHAROTIYO SHEET, A novel by Barin Ghoshal.
With a shortlived Indian winter in the backstage, Barin excites the reader with an abundantly experiemented novel form that weaves complexity into the tale and yet decentralizes the theme.
BIPOTHIK, A verse collection by Arunesh Ghosh.
Arunesh Ghosh, a veteran poet from the hungry generation of the 60's at his best.
KANAKLATA, A story collection by Udayan Ghosh.
Udayan Ghosh has been labled quite truly by his serious readers as perhaps
one of the most significant writers in modern Bengali. His wordcraft holds us spellbound as he dissects
the scene, throws his focus and mocks in a manner whose subtlety we have'nt heard before.
"Kanaklata", the title story, is undoubtedly one of the best in Bengali Literature.
