About the Book

S.K. Pottekkatt (1913-1982), short-story writer, playwright, novelist and poet was a unique phenomenon in Malayalam literature.

Adept in the art of story-telling, his plots invariably carry an element of surprise. At the end, the reader is left pondering over the terrible ironies that underlie human relations and the mysteries that lurk behind man's impulses and actions.

His travelogues, as exciting as his short stories, present a queer blend of personal impressions, anecdotes, and interesting information.

Pottekkatt's plays are the by-products of his short stories. They are rich in dramatic situations of tension and suspense.

His poems are simple and direct. To him poetry is the expression of noble sentiments in a lofty style.

Pottekkatt is, however, full in the elements in his novels. A keen observer is men's physiognomy, mannerisms and habits, he always uses the aptest metaphors to describe them.
