One of the most important literary personalities of twentieth century Bengali literature, Buddhdaeva Bose also wrote extensively in the English language on subjects that interested him. Literature is the most important of these, but he also wrote delightfully on art, cinema, and even food. An Acre of Green Grass presents one of India's finest writers---an essayist who deserves to be read and appreciated through the ages.
