T. Marx’s vibrant translation from the Tamil of Poomani’s outstanding novel, Piraku (And Then) captures with fine nuance the bittersweet way of life among the rural Chakkiliyar community. The ancient oral traditions of storytelling that convey the regional flavours of Poomani’s tale of class/ caste oppression, social stratification, and women’s double colonisation in the Karisal boomi (black soil region), show new resistant energy in the idiomatic, colloquial prose of Marx’s translation.
