Dancing with the Howler God A Tragicomic Novel

Author Name: Raju Riang | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

The book is about a legendary tragicomic folktale reflecting on the contemporary socioeconomic and belief systems of the Bru people (Riangs) of the erstwhile Kingdom of Tripura. It is a medley of fact and fiction, vulgarity and refinement, pleasure and pain of the ethnic Bru people. It is based on a faded folktale. Folktales are flawed, but folktales still. The bare bones of the past. The author has fleshed and sprinkled the ethnic spices to make the tale juicier, saucier and more palatable. It also reflects on love, romance, music, songs, dance, drinks, smokes, mischief, adultery, conflict and fights of the ethnic primitive tribe – the only Primitive Tribal Group (PTG) of Tripura, India.
