Snehasish Ganguly launches Arindam’s A Box Full of Darkness

Kolkata, Aug 23:

Author Arindam Basu’s second fiction A Box Full of Darkness was launched today at Oxford Bookstore here by CAB President Snehasish Ganguly in a quiet and classy programme attended by fellow authors and book lovers.

After launching the book, Snehasish Ganguly said, “I have known Arindam for a long time. He is passionate about writing. And I am an avid reader, though nowadays I don’t get so much time to read. His last collection of short stories was unputdownable. I am sure this one will be equally intriguing, filled with wicked twists and turns. The only thing is with the World Cup at hand I will read the book after the matches here at Eden Gardens would be over. It will be a good way to relax and get back to work.”

Talking about the book Arindam said, “This is a collection of short stories that are based on frailties within regular people. These are people we meet every day in buses, on streets, in offices and departmental stores, in between our daily haggles in the fish market, or while sipping a cold drink sitting inside the multiplex. We never realize that these are people broken from inside by something that goes beyond their own comprehension. It is when they confront the fissures that run through their hearts, sometimes all hell breaks loose. The ten tales locked away in these pages are the kind of story that will give you goosebumps, make you ponder, and rock you out of your smugness.”

A Box Full of Darkness is about characters imperfect and broken. A heart transplant patient who has unearthly visions, a parasomniac girl frantically looking for answers to her sleeplessness, a gamophobic man ploughing the furrows of his sins, make for some of these personalities. There are others also like a mythomaniac teacher who can’t handle her lies, a claustrophobic man stuck in an elevator, and a patient suffering from persecutory delusion. A lifer looking for retribution and finally a trilogy of a hired gun complete the eight central figures in a book of unexpected twists and turns.

This book is a roller-coaster ride that takes you to the peak and leaves you staring at the drop below. It will bring out your worst fears and land you face-to-face with your murkiest secrets.

The book is published by The Write Order.
