Audacious experimentalist and self-declared anti-writer,Subimal Misra is the master of contemporary alternative Bengali literature and anti-establishment writing. This collection brings together twenty-five stories that record the dark history of violence and degeneration in Bengal of the seventies and eighties. The mirror that Misra holds up to society breaks every canon of rectitude with unfailing precision. The stories also plot the continuous evolution of Misra s writing as he searches for a form to do justice to the reality that confronts us. Deeply influenced by Godard, Misra uses montage and other cinematic techniques in his stories, which he himself calls antistories ,challenging our notions of reading and of literature itself. Brilliantly translated by V. Ramaswamy, Wild Animals Prohibited: Stories/Anti-stories startles with its blasphemy, its provocative ideas and its sheer formlessness.

He has written exclusively for little magazines. V. Ramaswamy lives in Kolkata. He is engaged in a multi-volume project to translate the short fiction of Subimal Misra. The Golden Gandhi Statue from America: Early Stories, published in 2010, was shortlisted for the Vodafone Crossword Book Award. He was awarded the Sarai Fellowship for Non-fiction Writing in 2012.
