In this interview in The Daily Star, Bangla author Hasan Azizul Haque talks about his first collection of translated short stories and the importance of translation.
Hasan Azizul Haque is perhaps the most revered short story writer in contemporary Bangla literature. Very few of his stories have been translated and anthologized now and then. They, however, have fallen short of attracting an international audience. On the first day of Dhaka Hay, his first collection of translated short stories will be launched. Bengal Lights Publication has brought out the collection.
