520 8  This sly and humorous novel by Fakir Mohan Senapati--one 
       of the pioneering spirits of modern Indian literature and 
       an early activist in the fight against the destruction of 
       native Indian languages--is both a literary work and a 
       historical document. A text that makes use--and deliberate
       misuse--of both British and Indian literary conventions, 
       Six Acres and a Third provides a unique "view from below" 
       of Indian village life under colonial rule. Set in Orissa 
       in the 1830s, the novel focuses on a small plot of land, 
       tracing the lives and fortunes of people who are affected 
       by the way this property is sold and resold, as new legal 
       arrangements emerge and new types of people come to 
       populate and transform the social landscape. This graceful
       translation faithfully conveys the rare and compelling 
       account of how the more unsavory aspects of colonialism 
       affected life in rural India. 
546    In English, translated from Oriya.
