LATEST ISSUE

_____________

This November, we are pleased to offer our readers an especially rich issue of Six Seasons Review that we feel will delight you for its immense variety.
In particular, dear reader, we are sure that you will enjoy the wide-ranging collection of stories we have assembled here. From a cynical depiction of the mindscape of an embittered pump attendant in a London petrol station, to the tender evocation of intense emotions stirred by separation and unexpected union; from a magical affirmation of the power of love and imaginative writing, to the portrait of an aristocratic family falling apart in Bangladesh; from the story of a writer’s beginnings made vivid and real through “the truest of lies, fiction”, to a closely observed account of an American in Bangladesh whose “southern exposure” had transformed him; from the deft weaving of the cataclysmic events of 1971 in Bangladesh’s history with threads woven from family relationships, to a clear-eyed and sharp account of a beauty parlour in Dhaka; this issue offers you diverse worlds and amazing people captured skillfully and ingeniously from all sorts of perspectives. What is more, in the two splendidly translated tales we have collected, you will come across dramatic and gripping evocations of remarkable lives transformed into unforgettable fiction.

ABOUT SSR

Home

Six Seasons Review is an English-language literary journal published by Bengal Publications. Originally launched in Dhaka in 2001—as the first editorial put it—to meet the need for “an English-language Bangladeshi-Indian-sub-continental international periodical devoted exclusively to arts and letters.” It published a wide variety of content, including poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, dramas, critical essays, belles letters, translations and other arts. Six Seasons was later revived due to the wealth of quality work being produced by Bangladeshi writers, living in Dhaka and abroad. Our publisher and editorial collective believe that there is ample scope for more issues of Six Seasons Review and is committed to publishing some of the best writing from our region. The fifth issue of Six Seasons Review was published in the third week of November 2016 – in time to be displayed at the annual Dhaka Literary Festival.
