It s over it happened there s nothing more to say. I, Maloti Mukherji, someone s wife, and someone s mother I did it. Did it with Jayanto. Jayanto wanted me, and I him ... How did it happen? Easy. In fact I don t know why it didn t happen before I m surprised at my self-restraint, at Jayanto s patience. Banned when it was first published in the Bengali in 1967 on charges of obscenity, It Rained All Night went on to become a best-seller. Maloti, an attractive middle-class Bengali girl, marries the bookish college lecturer Nayonangshu only to find him insecure, sexually timid and unable to satisfy her. She discovers passion in the arms of the confident, earthy journalist Jayanto whose love provides her solace from the demands of her wifely duties. Maloti and Jayanto s growing intimacy does not go unnoticed by Nayonangshu, but his pride restrains him from reaching out to his wife. Bold, explicit and shockingly candid, It Rained All Night is an unforgettable tale of desire, adultery, jealousy and love.
