Out of Joint

Author Name: Pinaki Prasad Dhar | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

How many, when they were young, had seen the Dance of Death on the streets of their cities? Not many, hopefully! Nayan was one of those who had seen it. He saw the Dance of Death striking millions of youth and leaving them dead, maimed and incapacitated. Its tools of decimation were the red and the white terror. 

What a Fire Game it was! That’s the story of Out of Joint, the sequel to Paradise Inappropriate – the first part – the story of Nayan‘s personal suffering. He sees the paradise of his teenage years dwindling before his pain-stricken eyes – his first love getting poisoned by adult prejudice. It was like the serpent ensnaring Eve – although in a different context altogether. The cup of Nayan‘s disenchantment, thus, was full... He did manage to come out of his ennui. As the novel ends, we find Nayan hopeful that there would be light at the end of the tunnel.

Pinaki Prasad Dhar

Pinaki Prasad Dhar, the author, enjoys a long-standing relationship with the English language as a teacher, a writer, a translator and an editor. He had the good fortune of teaching the language for the better part of half a century. Out of that, six years were spent suffering the pain of being an administrator as HOD English at St. Anthony’s College, Shillong. He had joined that college as a teacher in 1974. Retiring from the profession in 2018 from KLB College, Shillong, he came back to Kolkata, his hometown, and stays there now with his wife Monimala – also a writer of repute and an extremely able educator. His daughter and son-in-law are in Shanghai. Kolkata, the city of the birth of his consciousness, serves as the locale in Out of Joint. The heart-breaking and turbulent experiences of the late sixties and the early seventies of the last century had been with him as a sapling and then as a tree for all of fifty years. The fruit, therefore, should be ripe! Out of Joint is his second book.
