The Love Letter and other stories by Buddhadeva Bose is a collection of seven stories and two one-act plays translated from the Bengali by Arunava Sinha. All the stories have been written very well and carry a very deep meaning and my sincere advice to all the readers is that they should read one story at a time to savour it.
My favourite short story is “The Shadow” which talks about silent love never acknowledged and “Twenty five years after- or before” is my favourite one act play written about two lovers who meet at an international airport after 25 years.
The book has been beautifully written and does not feel like a translated work at all. But the stories take a lot of time to be absorbed.
