Translated by Pradipta Borgohain
Homen Borgohain is one of Assam’s most acclaimed writers. This collection of his novellas and short stories, translated by his son Pradipta, includes Matsyagandha, a tale of inter-caste marriage and drug addiction, and numerous stories about middle-class life in contemporary Assam. Borgohain’s stories reflect upon modern forms of social hypocrisy and moral corruption, while retaining irony and humour.
