It is a mixture of a biography, a tribute, and a critical analysis of Chaplin's life and his films.
The most recent edition also includes a number of essays written by Sen,
both in English and Bengali, about Chaplin.
Inside jacket of the current edition shows the
original cover design of the first edition, which was done by
Satyajit Ray. It was published in 1953 -- before either filmmaker
released their first films.
