She is known for her support of eugenics, writing on women’s oppression and criticism of religion, despite forced exile. Some of her books are banned in Bangladesh.

In 1992 Nasrin produced two novellas which failed to draw attention.

Her breakthrough novel Lajja (Shame) was published in 1993, and attracted wide attention because of its controversial subject matter. It contained the struggle of a patriotic Bangladeshi Hindu family in a Muslim environment. Initially written as a thin documentary, Lajja grew into a full-length novel as the author later revised it substantially. In six months’ time, it sold 50,000 copies in Bangladesh before being banned by the government that same year.[81]

Her other famous novel is French Lover, published in 2002.

 

Nasrin started writing poetry when she was thirteen. While still at college in Mymensingh, she published and edited a literary magazine, SeNjuti (“Light in the dark”), from 1978 to 1983. She published her first collection of poems in 1986. Her second collection, Nirbashito Bahire Ontore (“Banished within and without”) was published in 1989. She succeeded in attracting a wider readership when she started writing columns in late 1980s, and, in the early 1990s, she began writing novels, for which she has won significant acclaim.[57] In all, she has written more than thirty books of poetry, essays, novels, short stories, and memoirs, and her books have been translated into 20 different languages.

Her own experience of sexual abuse during adolescence and her work as a gynaecologist influenced her a great deal in writing about the alleged treatment of women in Islam and against religion in general.[67] Her writing is characterised by two connected elements: her struggle with the Islam of her native culture, and her feminist philosophy. She cites Virginia Woolf and Simone de Beauvoir as influences, and, when pushed to think of one closer to home, Begum Rokeya, who lived during the time of undivided Bengal.[75] Her later poetry also evidences a connection to place, to Bangladesh and India.[76][/vc_column_text][trx_skills width=”70%”][trx_skills_item title=”Novel” value=”95%” color=”#de3242″ style=”1″][/trx_skills_item][trx_skills_item title=”Essay” value=”05%” color=”#de3242″ style=”1″][/trx_skills_item][/trx_skills][trx_socials size=”tiny” shape=”round” socials=”facebook=https://www.facebook.com/AncoraThemes/|twitter=https://twitter.com/ancora_themes|instagramm=https://www.instagram.com/ancora_themes/” top=”small”][/trx_socials][/trx_column_item][/trx_columns][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1456408097084{background-color: #f5f5f4 !important;}”][vc_column][trx_content bottom=”large”][trx_title type=”4″ style=”underline” align=”center” css=”margin-top: 1.8em;” bottom=”tiny”]Latest Books[/trx_title]
