Gaban, first published in 1931, five years before Premchard's death, is the story of Ramanath, a morally weak but physically charming youth brought to near-disaster by his beautiful wife Jalpa's inordinate craving for jewelry. This is a felicitous translation by Christopher R King and will enable many readers to appreciate Premchand's important novel, available for the first time in English.
