This book presents Selections from the Bengali writings of Sunil Gangopadhyay, edited by Enakshi Chatterjee. In a matter of 60 years, the term 'reader', normally associated with classrooms, has begun to mean also a selection of a writer in a single volume.It Explains how and why Sunil Gangopadhyay is one of the nation's leading creative minds.
Sunil Gangopadhyay – A Reader (b. 1934), prolific poet, journalist, novelist, script writer and dramalist, spearheaded a new literary movement in Bengal after Independence, along with his contemporaries Shakti Chattopadhyay and Nirendranath Chakrovarty. Although Sunil Gangopadhyay is known more for his fiction, it is poetry which is his ‘‘first love’’.

Born in Faridpur, now in Bangladesh, his family had to leave home after the Partition. Gangopadhyay started writing while still in his teens and tried his hand at various jobs to make ends meet.
