Boats on Land is a unique way of looking at India's northeast against a larger historical canvas--the early days of the British Raj, the World Wars, the missionaries and conversions to Christianity.
This is a world in which the everyday is infused with folklore and an unshakeable belief in the supernatural. Here, a girl dreams of being a firebird. An artist watches souls turn into trees. A man shape-shifts into a tiger. Another is bewitched by water fairies. Political struggles and social unrest interweave with fireside tales and age-old superstitions.
Winner of the Sahitya Academy Yuva Puraskar Award, Janice Pariat quietly captures our fragile and awkward place in the world.
