Hauntings: Bangla Ghost Storie...
Elusive and jelly-like, the 13 ghost stories in this volume conjoin two different worlds: ethereal and the real. It features female protagonists who speak of intersecting, universal women-experiences of love and rape, loneliness and betrayal, marginalization and dark dilemmas. These are the elements through which the haunting stories are told in a quintessentially Bengali idiom. The volume s stories are by writers spanning the entire twentieth century: Rabindranath Tagore, Pramatha Chaudhuri, Panchkori De, Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay, Mahasweta Devi and the like.
