From Peary Chand Mitter’s Alaler Gharer Dulal (1857) to Samaresh Basu’s Mahakaler Rather Ghora (1977), Random House India presents the greatest Bengali novels in their definitive translation. Many of these books will be translated into English for the first time. Durgeshnandini (The Chieftain’s Daughter) is by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. Bankim is the father of the Bengali novel and considered by many as its greatest novelist. Durgeshnandini is his first novel in Bengali and the first complete novel in Indian literature. Inspired by the romances of Walter Scott, it is a swashbuckling historical epic set in Bengal during the reign of the Mughal emperor Akbar in the sixteenth century.
