From a cramped, ant-infested house to a spacious bungalow, a family finds itself making a transition in many ways. The narrator, a sensitive young man, is numbed by the swirl around him. All he can do is flee every day to an old-world cafe, where he seeks solace from an oracular waiter. As members of the family realign their equations and desires, new strands are knotted, others come apart, and conflict brews dangerously in the background. Brilliantly translated to Bengali by Arunava Sinha, Ghachor Ghochor is a suspenseful, playful and ultimately menacing story about the shifting consequences of success.
