About the Book: J.P.Das Selected Stories
J. P Das's short fiction is one of the central pillars of the genre in Oriya.
His stories map out the silences, frustrated hopes and contradictions of an
entire generation of Indians. A feature of J. P. Das's stories is the slow,
deliberate accretion of detail that seems calculated to make the reader
breathless and impatient, driving him on to the inevitable climax, which
provides a sense of relief as well as disbelief.
