Summary
  • River called Titas: "A saga ... [of] the tumultuous lives of people in fishing villages along the banks of the Titas River in pre-Partition East Bengal"--Container
  • Dry summer: "Follows the machinations of an unrepentantly selfish tobacco farmer who builds a dam to prevent water from flowing downhill to his neighbors' crops. ... Alongside this tale ... is one of overheated desire, as a love triangle develops between the farmer, his more decent brother, and the beautiful villager the latter takes as his bride"--Container
