Dozakhnama: Conversations in Hell is an extraordinary novel, a biography of Manto and Ghalib
and a history of Indian culture rolled into one.

Exhumed from dust, Manto's unpublished novel surfaces in Lucknow. Is it real or is it a fake? In this dastan, Manto and Ghalib converse, entwining their lives in shared dreams. The result is an intellectual journey that takes us into the people and events that shape us as a culture. As one writer describes it, ‘I discovered Rabisankar Bal like a torch in the darkness of the history of this subcontinent. This is the real story of two centuries of our own country.'

Rabisankar Bal's audacious novel, told by reflections in a mirror and forged in the fires of hell, is both an oral tale and a shield against oblivion. An echo of distant screams. Inscribed by the devil's quill, Dozakhnama is an outstanding performance of subterranean memory.
