My Kind of Girl

A novel by

Four middle-aged men, strangers to one another, await a train in Tundla station, Uttar Pradesh. Struck by the bliss and obliviousness of a passing young couple, they while away the long December's night by telling of the secret loves of their own pasts. As night draws towards dawn, the station's waiting room forms the backdrop to an elegant and tender consideration of memory's lasting power. Now available for the first time in English translation, My Kind of Girl is a poignant and sophisticated modern classic by the greatest Bengali writer since Tagore.
