The thirteen stories in this collection span a period of nearly thirty years, from the early sixties to the late nineties, and are the works of some of the most respected fiction writers of Bangladesh. No connoisseur of Bangla literature will dispute the fact that an anthology of short stories by writers from Bangladesh cannot be complete without them. However, the problems of logistics make it the editor’s painful duty to exclude all but just a few out of a vast array of superb literary creations. Even so, the expatriate Bangla speaking community who have made their second home outside Bangladesh, especially the third generation who have had little chance to acquire the kind of fluency of their mother tongue that would enable them to read Bangla literature with facility, are sure to find in these stories the true flavour of their linguistic and cultural heritage. At the same time, readers belonging to other communities as well will be able to savour the richness of Bangla literature by reading these translated stories.
