Written over a span of thirty years, from the mid-seventies to the present, the stories in this anthology suggest the range of Purabi Basu's themes as well as the versatility of her craft. At the same time, whether writing about a mythic region as in "The Rage of Moonlight" or about contemporary America as in "Stairs," whether couched in the poetic lilt of "Radha Will Not Cook Today" or in the prosaic listing of scientific data of "Mother-Earth," the stories reveal the writer's feminist concerns as well as her deep humanistic sensibilities. Her variety of styles, structure and language is sure to appeal to a range of readers. Despite being translations, the stories in this volume, rendered into English by translators, many of whom are poets or short story writers, in Bangla or in English, literary editors and editors of literary magazines, will help convey to an audience not familiar with the original Bangla the richness of Purabi Basu's talent.
