Darkly glamorous and fiercely erotic heroines take centre stage in these two novellas.
In Panty, when a mysterious young woman arrives in Calcutta and moves into a guest house, she finds in an otherwise empty wardrobe a soft and silky panty in leopard-skin print. She thinks the woman who wore it must have possessed a wild sexual nature. A feeling of companionship envelops her; the sexual lives of the two women begin to mingle and blur.
In Hypnosis, another young woman-a TV journalist on perpetual night dutyhas an unconsummated but passionate affair with a famous musician that leaves her shattered. In the nightmarish sequence of events that follows, she allows herself to be hypnotized and drugged to aid her search for love.
Exposing our darkest desires and deepest fears when it comes to love, the effect of Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay s ferocious storytelling is deliciously anarchic and deeply unsettling.

When Panty was first published in Bengali, it created a furore-a reaction that is par for the course for Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay. Her controversial first novel, Shankini, made an explosive debut. Since then she has published nine novels and over fifty short stories. Also a newspaper columnist and a film critic, Sangeeta lives and writes in Kolkata.
An award-winning translator of classic, modern and contemporary Bengali writing, Arunava Sinha has contributed significantly to the presence of a number of fine Bengali writers in English, including Buddhadev Bose, Rabindranath Tagore and Sankar.
