The imprints of her ancestors' feet that were displayed, amongst other memorabilia, on the walls of her house had always intrigued Priti, for to her they were malevolent. As she grew up, she almost obsessively questioned the mystery that lay behind the absence of the footprint of her great grandmother, the enigmatic Gauri, whose name was a taboo in the family and any questions asked pertaining to her life, considered blasphemous. Her grandfather was aware of this and on his deathbed, he bequeathed a key to her to unravel the truth lost in the dark shades of feudal Bengal. Will Priti be successful in the arduous task she has before her and what will her findings be? Brilliantly structured, the book has been aesthetically crafted, with its narrative moving on a parallel course between the past and the present, between rural Bengal and modern Kolkata, between hard-core realism and lyrical emotion. Steeped in local colour, the two voices quite distinct yet gradually merging in Priti's consciousness, create a mystery that proceeds at breakneck speed, compels the reader's total attention but never loses sight of the feminist issues at stake.

Review:

Review by Maduvanti M I like to read novels that have suspense and mystery. I found 'Half a Face' hard to put down. The novelist Nonda Chatterjee has managed to hold the reader's attention from the beginning to the end. The heroine of this novel Priti is puzzled because questions about the life of her great-grandmother were not allowed in her family. On his deathbead, Priti's grandfather gives her an important clue to help her solve the mystery related to Gauri. As the novel progresses, many questions about Gauri are answered. The writer also gives a lot of information about the events in Bengal during the times before partition, partition and the present. The story is not about Priti and Gauri alone. The lives of many others are included too. Too many strands make the story complicated. But the novel describes situations and characters in detail and the readers will feel that they are watching the story happen right before their eyes.
