Galpa: Short Stories by Bangladeshi Women

by Edited by Niaz Zaman and Firdous Azim
£9.99   paperback  Saqi Books (2005)

Galpa: Short Stories by Bangladeshi Women by Edited by Niaz Zaman and Firdous Azim This vibrant and thought-provoking anthology of translated short stories is representative of the variety of issues that women from Bangladesh tackle in their writings.
 
It includes stories on the 1971 War of Liberation, women's 'honour', mother-daughter relationships, the vagaries of marriage and contemporary political corruption.
 
Well-established women writers such as Selina Hossain and Nasreen Jehan are represented here, along with emerging writers, the better to evoke the broad range of Bangladeshi women's literary voices.
 
Daring in both form and theme, these stories reveal the exciting transformation that fiction writing is currently experiencing on the contemporary literary scene.
