Sabitri Roy

Translated by Adrita Mukherjee

In this novel set in post-Partition Bengal, newly translated into English, Sabitri Roy paints a complex portrait of characters who are navigating their lives and communal tension after being displaced from their land. These include communists and people embroiled in the labour movements of the 1950s, as well as their adversaries.
