Fever  

Fever is an explosive anthology of short stories from an author who has been at the centre of literary commotion in Nepal for the past two decades.

Mature and skillfully structured, these stories investigate the hidden recesses of a woman's mind. Bold, intense and honest, they narrate the life struggle of a young woman from the Nepalese countryside hankering for a fresh emotional plateau of faith in a callously modernised cityscape of the legendary Shangri-la kingdom. Thus as one reads Sita Panday page after page, one finds the personal fused with the public.

Having entered the valley of a woman's mind, Sita effortlessly transcends gender and geography. The rage and revolt expressed in her characters reveals a woman's urge to shatter the norms of a decaying value system and reach out to a "universal celebration" and a "private space".

Translated from Nepali for the first time, Fever bears testimony to the richness and diversity of South Asian literature.
