Arpan Banerjee was born in the year 1964, in Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from Calcutta University, and is presently working in a private manufacturing unit in Jamshedpur. He is an ardent reader and lover of literature and art. A newcomer in this path he tries to evoke the complexity and simplicity in the life of a ‘Woman’, as a mother, wife, secretary, student, friend, and girlfriend. Through the three short stories in this book, he has made an attempt to portray the various faces of a woman. There are sentimental, passionate, tender, un-ethical, and loving moments in every woman’s life which this fiction evolves into. WOMAN with MANY FACES Read, you shall discover!
In a glance:
The book appears to me like a female oriented novel in the first look, but as one flips through the pages- 3 beautiful short stories unfold. The stories picture different shades of women.
Strong firm and fragile- A woman being a melange of all the qualities mentioned above. The author has taken a step to project women in all the scenarios and they turn out best in all of them.
This book being a combination of three stories present different faces of women and hence the title stands apt for the book. The book cover and the narration style of author, pictures a melodious tuning of his thoughts. This being a debut book has a potential to attract readers (specifically females and males who want to understand females better).
I will conclude it on a note that this is a fictional representation of author’s observations which seeps into the reader.
4/5 (Pick it now!)
