Book Description

Crowded and disordered, Dhaka city deals out blows and isolation - as well as success and epiphany - to the denizens who populate these nine stories. Dhaka's change from a sleepy provincial capital to a dysfunctional megalopolis is mirrored by characters who learn to face disappointments in love and ambition.


In “Chameli,” a boy falls for a neighborhood Punjabi girl in 1970; while in “Losing Ayesha,” scars of young love endure into adulthood. Dhaka's darker side emerges when an accountant accidentally triggers a mob beating; and a returning expatriate learns to navigate a city far more vicious and violent than the one he left. In the title story, a Bengali waiter is tempted to take revenge on an elder statesman. The final story is a parable of the city’s rise and fall, as a tycoon realizes there is no one to organize his sixtieth birthday party but himself.


Severed connections and the longing for understanding are at the heart of this moving set of stories. Employing spare but precise language that recalls Naipaul and Coetzee and vibrant evocations akin to Vargas Lllosa and BolaƱo, these stories mark the debut of a strong new talent in the burgeoning scene of English writing in Bangladesh.

Struggling newspaper-editor Hissam is finding it harder and harder to pretend that believing in your work is just as satisfying as landing a big promotion. His old college friend Kaiser has fared considerably better as one of the city’s wealthiest property developers, who also happens to be married to the woman of Hissam’s dreams. Hissam’s chance to strike it big presents itself in the form of a military backed Emergency that upends the country’s social order. Choosing to back different sides, Hissam and Kaiser find themselves trading places in a way that changes their relationship, and their lives, forever. This richly satirical novel heralds a major new voice from Bangladesh.
