Though not one of his well-known novels, Three Days and Three Nights (Tin Din Tin Ratri) is one of Narendranath Mitra’s most important novels. The psychological tension of two sisters of a struggling middle class family, centering a police officer posted in the rural area, has been deftly dealt with. A beautiful and truthful rendering has made the volume highly readable.
