Description

The House of Cards & Other Stories is a translation of some of Tarashankar Bandopadhyay's best short stories which showcase man's deepest and most basic instincts. Love, lust, envy, pride, survival instinct, the corrupting influence of power-every facet of human character is explored.

And it is exactly that which enables these stories to cross boundaries of time and space. The characters might be the poor people of Birbhum but the emotions are universal.
