Book Review: A Strange Attachment and Other Stories by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay

Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay is known to the most through Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy and it’s fair, really. The books on which Apu Trilogy is based are indisputably his best work, but he has written much more that’s just as good. Especially short stories. The best place to start is  A Strange Attachment and Other Stories: by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay, Translated by Phyllis Granoff.
