The Cauliflower (R), Hardback Book

Description

To the world he is Sri Ramakrishna - godly avatar, esteemed spiritual master, beloved guru.

To Rani Rashmoni, he is the Brahmin fated to defy tradition.

But to Hriday, his nephew and long-time caretaker, he is just Uncle - maddening, bewildering Uncle, prone to entering trances at the most inconvenient of times, known to perform dangerous acts of self-effacement, who must be vigilantly safeguarded not only against jealous enemies but also against that most treasured yet insidious of sulphur-rich vegetables: the cauliflower. Rather than puzzling the shards of history and legend together, Barker shatters the mirror again and rearranges the pieces.

The result is a biographical novel viewed through a kaleidoscope.

Dazzlingly inventive and brilliantly comic, irreverent and mischievous, The Cauliflower (R) delivers us into the divine playfulness of `one of the most exhilarating, audacious, and . . . ballsy writers of her generation' (Observer).
