An early, fascinating view of Goan writing, brought together by Peter Nazareth. First published in the 1980s, but only now available for the first time in Goa. It contains extracts from novels, essays, poems, short-stories (from ‘the outside’, and ‘local’ settings), stories of return, essays on home and exile, a one-act play, and bibliography and notes on contributors. Till now, this volume has been very rare and difficult to find in Goa, coming from far (Oakland University in Michigan). The single-most important volume that could help one understand the writing of 20th century Goa (and some earlier phases) in a nutshell. Prof. Nazareth’s anthology was the first to present an amazing range of Goan and diaspora writing.
