These evocative stories feature female protagonists who speak of women's experiences universally - of rape, love, loneliness, betrayal and social marginality.

13 ghost stories representative of an entire corpus of Bangla literature - they thrill to the supernatural, skillfully trading the thin line between the shadowy recesses of the nether world and the equally inaccessible creations of deluded minds.

Eerie and elusive, cautionary and compelling - these ghost stories enchant with their whimsy as much as they thrill with their suggestion of menace.

Complex emotions expressed in an idiom that is quintessentially Bengali.
