This book talks about the little-known Guru-Shishya (master-disciple) relationship between Kamalkumar Majumdar and Sunil Gangopadhyay. While Majumdar is one of the finest writers of fiction in inimitably ambiguous yet artistic prose (Majumdar is to us what Jorge Luis Borges has been to the West) during the second half of the twentieth century, Gangopadhyay has been one of the most popular novelists (of Those Days and The First Light fame) in Bengali literature till date. The intimate relationship shared by these two maestros and their exchange of ideas resulted in the ideation of several key concepts relating to contemporary art, literature, drama, and aesthetics. Maji’s book delves deep into this camaraderie and invites the readers as quiet listeners to the discourse.
