1 Ashokamitran
Mole!
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125026827 / 9788125026822; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The fictional events narrated in Mole! – an English translation of Otran, a novel by Ashokamitran – take place within a period of seven months, nearly all of them in the American Midwest. The narrator, a culturally rooted writer from Chennai, is transplanted amidst a motley group of fellow-writers from distant parts of the world, all of them as dangerously dislocated as him. Deprived of the language that has brought them fulfillment and distinction, these writers struggle to retain their place of precarious honour in a strange, unfamiliar and sometimes hostile environment. And in the background looms the endearing, if exasperating, landscape of twentieth-century America. Kalyan Raman’s English translation illumines the subtle, spare strength of Ashokamitran’s prose. Printed Pages: 161. 031644

2 Ashokamitran
Sand and Other Stories
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8125022686 / 9788125022688; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book is a translated collection of 3 novellas, spanning three decades of Ashokamitran’s work. The stories are about women trapped by an almost absolute lack of resources (financial, intellectual and emotional). The narrative in all three novellas moves in a series of short scenes, building tension with a relentless layering of detail. The exploitation of these women and their daily struggle against it is exposed in all its terrifying ordinariness. The stories have all the identifiable characteristics of Ashokamitran’s writing—irony, interiority, sensitivity. Printed Pages: 133. 031649
