Another Dozen Stories brings to you the magical, bizarre, spooky and sometimes astonishing worlds created by Satyajit Ray, featuring an extraordinary bunch of characters!

While 'The McKenzie Fruit' trails a humble man trying to leave his mark in history, 'Worthless' is a moving story about a seemingly hapless character not quite able to win the confidence of his family.

This collection includes twelve hair-raising stories that will leave you asking for more!

It is such a joy to be able to revisit some of Manik-da's most memorable works in this genre. The stories translated by Indrani Majumdar highlight everything we have come to love and admire about Manik-da's multifaceted creativity.This is a befitting tribute to the master on his 100th anniversaryThe book was marked by simple language full of colloquial terms, puns and literary allusions, which were often his way of paying tribute to his father Sukumar Ray, famous for his nonsense poetry.
