Are you, by any chance, planning to buy this book? I want to stop you from committing this grave mistake! If you want to read this book, you better buy "Indian English Literature: 1980-2000: A Critical Survey" by Prof. M.K. Naik and Prof. Shyamala A. Narayan from Pencraft International Publishing House. This is because Das's book is a compilation of lengthy quotations from the latter book (and just a few others). Almost in every alternative page you will come across paragraphs quoted from Prof. Naik's book. If you already happen to have the (disgusting) experience of reading any of the books by Das, you would know that Prof. Das is incorrigibly inclined to "agree with" and "concur with" other scholars of repute in the area, and hence, is never hesitant to quote paragraph/s from their books/articles in every other page of the books which mention him to be the "author". After all, this saves him the trouble of explaining the concepts in his own words, which would require conceptual clarity on his part.
P.S. The only benefit that you might have of reading this book is to get to read occasional excerpts from the primary texts discussed, in case you haven't read them already.
