Blue and Other Tales of Obessive Love

Additional Information

Teji Grover’s prose has an elusive temperament, a transcendence that emerges from the echoes and images the narrative weaves. The many women in her fiction seem mythical creatures, who are smouldering with an ancient memory, in search of a paradise they were exiled from. Teji belongs to that tribe for whom an artist is essentially androgynous. As she strives to retrieve the primal woman in her fiction, a woman unencumbered by the civilizational constraints, the identity returns by a different route, creating a distinct discourse. Hindi, the language of her creative works, has an innate mythical character that has not yet yielded to the demands of rationality Meena Arora Nayak renders her fiction into English with an extraordinary deftness. This book, then, can also be read as an intimate conversation between the two languages. - Ashutosh Bhardwaj
