The City of Devi, Paperback


Armed only with a pomegranate, Sarita ventures into the empty streets of Mumbai, on the eve of its threatened nuclear annihilation.

She is looking for her physicist husband Karun, who has been missing for over a fortnight.

She is soon joined on her quest by Jaz - cocky, handsome, Muslim, gay, and in search of his own lover.

Together they traverse the surreal landscape of a dystopia rife with absurdity, and are inexorably drawn to the patron goddess Devi ma, the supposed saviour of the city. Groundbreaking and multilayered, The City of Devi is a fearlessly provocative tale of three individuals balancing on the sharp edge of fate.
