These English translations from the Gujarati bring Saroj Pathak’s work to a wider audience, giving it the greater attention it deserves. Delving deep into the human mind, the stories depict the pitfalls of communication, the infinite possibilities of misunderstanding, of doubt and despair. At the same time they celebrate the human psyche’s ability to bridge these chasms and made connections, of love, understanding, and friendship. Pathak considers the predicaments of both women and men as they grapple with the modernity that has been thrust upon them. Indeed, Pathak’s interest in men as well as women characters distinguishes her from many other women novelists.
