DYANCHINAMA : Ekti Smritir Pratnasandhaan

Parimal Bhattacharya

Availability: In stock

It began as a travelogue narrating the wanderings of three young men in the tense, forested heartland of Chhotonagpur in early 1990s. Looking back, it has turned out to be a site of buried memories, personal and collective – of famine, Partition, Naxalite movement in 1970s, and the shadows and echoes of a lost era. Fashioned out of diverse materials that include memoirs, gazetteers, a journal and vintage photographs, this book inhabits the unclassifiable and provocative space between history and fiction, autobiography and narrative non-fiction. Reading it is like stepping into the unsettling three-dimensional world of an art installation.

First edition : December 2012, Second Edition: Dec.2015, Third Print: July 2019, ISBN 978-93-80732-25-1, 160 pages, Paperback, 21.5 x 14cm.
