About the Book

A musician never realized the truth of the saying 'Music is a harshtaskmaster' until his beloved instrument exacts the highest sacrifice.An unfaithful husband is baffled: his wife grows more and more perfectuntil she literally becomes the goddess of plenty. A loving mother isnaturally distraught at the kidnapping of her son by insurgents...or isshe? And Modon Sur, with the spoils of a full night's thievery in tow,finds himself in a sticky situation on a black amavasya night.In this collection, Mitra Phukan sounds the rhythms of contemporaryAssamese society, deftly weaving universal themes of love, loss andageing with some of the issues facing the region: militancy, witchcraft,and the breakdown of traditional ways of life. Her stories acutelydepict people's struggles to relate to each other across vast social gulfsand within the intricacies of family and love. Intimate, allusive, andwryly observed, A Full Night's Thievery is a finely drawn portrait ofhumanity by one of the most prominent literary voices in Assam today.
