Review: Satyajit Ray In 100 Anecdotes: A Collector’s Edition

Satyajit Ray in 100 Anecdotes is a delightful collector’s item, both for children and adults. It demystifies this genius through anecdotes, some little known secrets and some well known ones, which are already in the public realm. It’s an easy, memorable read. You really don’t need to worry which page you are on, as each page is a story in itself.
