Hasan Azizul Huq is known for his stories that bring a powerful social consciousness to bear on the lives of ordinary people in contemporary Bangladesh--but doing so with surprising twists to what we think of as the typical grounds of realistic fiction. The Agony of the Ghost gathers twelve remarkable stories from his large oeuvre that offer a sense of the range of his insights and approaches. In "Without Name or Lineage," a man returns home in search of his wife and son after the war, only to find them in ways both unexpected and expected. "The Sorcerer" finds a sorcerer dying without revealing his secrets to three brothers who had been trying to compel him to tell--and strange deaths follow. In " Throughout the Afternoon," a disarmingly simple story, a young boy awaits his grandfather's death. In all the stories, the lives of the most disadvantaged people in Bengali society are revealed in harrowing, unforgettable detail.

Who am I? Who are we? Simple yet profound questions. What does it mean to be human? Why does society sometimes make us feel inadequate and diminished as humans? Where does the church and religion slot into this sense of dehumanization? What are we doing to ourselves and to others to impede our journey as humans living to the fullest? Why does it feel as if violence and fear is the dominant narrative in this modern world? Who is Jesus? Again, a simple yet profound question. A question that can open the door to knowing what it truly means to be human, living a life of love and not fear and violence. With the help of ancient and modern thinkers, pioneer, church planter, and chaplain Joe Haward explores these questions in this provocative book and seeks to help us reconnect with our beautiful humanity.
