Beginning with Roquiah Sakhawat Hussein’s Sultana’s Dream, the anthology spans a hundred years of women’s writing from this region and is representative of the variety of issues that women from Bangladesh tackle in their writings. It includes stories about the War of Liberation, women’s ‘honour,’ mother-daughter relationships, the vagaries of marriage and contemporary political corruption. Well-established and award-winning women writers such as Selina Hussain, Rabeya Khatoon, Nasreen Jahan, Purabi Basu, and Shaheen Akhtar along with emerging writers who are beginning to make their mark have been represented here, the better to evoke the broad range of women’s literary voices.
Galpa has been co-edited by Firdous Azim and Niaz Zaman, professors of English at the University of Dhaka, who have earlier collaborated on Infinite Variety, Bhinno Chokhe, and Different Perspectives.
Firdous Azim is Professor of English at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh. She has published widely on literary, cultural and women’s issues, both inside and outside the country, including The Colonial Rise of the Novel (1993). She is an active member of Naripokkho, a woman’s activist group in Bangladesh, and is currently working on a women activists’ memoir project.

Niaz Zaman is Professor of English, University of Dhaka. Her publications include the prize-winning study A Divided Legacy: The Partition in Selected Novels of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh; the novel The Crooked Neem Tree and the short story anthology The Dance and Other Stories. She is currently preparing a second collection of short stories for the press.
