Main Description
This translation provides access to the major works of a leading Marathi writer. Kamal Desai's fiction is focused on the micro levels of inner life where experience is held together by the compelling and never predictable struggle for selfhood. Nearly always, subtle and ongoing antagonisms structure and threaten Kamal Desai's imagined communities. Before she can tear down the walls of the temple of the Dark Sun (Kala Surya) the protagonist must extricate herself from its tenacious and pervasive hold on her inner life. In the much acclaimed 'Woman Wearing a Hat' (Hat Ghalnari Bai), a woman asserts her right to a Promethean venture in the face of crippling opposition.
Main Description
This translation provides access to the major works of a leading Marathi writer. The stories embody a witty and subtly felt understanding of the tensions and cross-currents of an indigenous modernity even as they deconstruct it. Kamal Desai's fiction is focused on the micro levels of inner life where experience is held together by the compelling and never predictable struggle for selfhood. Nearly always, subtle and ongoing antagonisms structure and threaten Kamal Desai's imagined communities. Before she can tear down the walls of the temple of the Dark Sun (Kala Surya) the protagonist must extricate herself from its tenacious and pervasive hold on her inner life. In the much acclaimed 'Woman Wearing a Hat' (Hat Ghalnari Bai), a woman asserts her right to a Promethean venture in the face of crippling opposition. In this process the inadequacy of patriarchal constructs becomes apparent to her.
