Reviews

‘No Path in Darjeeling is Straight is Parimal Bhattacharya’s memorable contribution to understanding Darjeeling through a prism, where different colourful images magically come together to offer a remarkable clarity into the hill town as it once was, and its steady decline to what it is now.’ Book review of No Path in Darjeeling is Straight by Parimal Bhattacharya.

‘…it is a story about lost hopes and the constant political haggling that still plague the hills today. It is by no means a happy story. Thapa’s translation adeptly conveys the nuances allowing for a twisting of tense as the story moves back and forth in time.’ Book review of There’s a Carnival Today by Indra Bahadur Rai, translated by Manjushree Thapa.

Abubakar Adam Ibrahim centres his debut story on the changing life of a well respected widow set in the conservative Hausa society of Northern Nigeria. While he spins a story of heartbreak, his main task is to shatter the deceptions that conservative society takes refuge in, issues of what women of a certain age should or should not do and who they should associate with. Book review of Season of Crimson Blossoms by Abubakar Adam Ibrahim.
