Distinct from the conventional modes of storytelling that preceded him, Misra’s pieces are more anti-stories than stories, a montage of images that flow into each other and tell a tale with greater power and urgency than narrative fiction. Every story hits hard, gripping the reader with intensity and an underlying fantastical horror that is firmly rooted in reality.V.

Ramaswamy’s exceptional translation brings to the fore the contemporaneity of Misra’s work while retaining the verve and pungency of the original.Anti-establishment and revolutionary, these stories by a writer whom many consider to be a cult figure in Bengali literature resonate with truths that are undeniable even today, forty years after they were written.“There is nothing like the last thing or any absolute in literature.

I will have to try to cross even the postmodern mark. If I cannot, then all my writing should be destroyed, there is no use for all that rubbish. I stand against myself, against all my creations. I reject everything, including myself, and thus I question.

I hate stagnation of thought, ideas and beliefs. There are vast possibilities in front of us, new horizons, new understandings… Man cannot stop, man cannot brood over myths, he has only on option open to him – to move on, or perish.” – Subimal Misra
