Throughout this book, Marie Seton reaffirms legends and debunks myths about the life and works of Satyajit Ray. She is neither a fan nor a critic, and that’s quite possibly her biggest strength as a biographer. You must marvel at how, despite the obvious proximity to her subject, she never calls him ‘Manik’ like his other close friends did, until a few times towards the end. He almost always remains ‘Satyajit’ to her and we’re thankful for it. Even today, over forty years after it was first published, her Portrait Of A Director is one of the truest chronicles of the life and times of one of India’s greatest artists, Satyajit Ray.
