An unemployed young man is invited to his lover's wedding and decides to gift her a bottle of his own blood. Rumours of a great big flood or the end of days or a rebellion of refugees in Calcutta fly through the country. Haran majhi's starved widow's corpse floats down rivers and swamps and drains as the nation awaits eagerly the unveiling of the golden Gandhi statue from America. The early stories of Subimal Paper Backra took the Bengali literary world by storm upon their publication in the late 1960s. Distinct from the conventional modes of storytelling that preceded him Paper Backra'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 Paper Backra's work while retaining the verve and pungency of the original. Anti establishment and revolutionaryt hese 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.
