What happens when cultures collide? When poets and angels clash? Driven by voices in her head and visions of angel-hood, Pari is the heroine of this extraordinary novel. Part detective story, part literary history and part romance, this is the tale of a paranoid schizophrenic child-woman who is seduced like many others by a language and culture not ours. Rukmini Bhaya Nair skillfully weaves together the lives of Pari, Sylvia Plath, William Blake and D. H. Lawrence to create a carefully layered story that flashes between past, present and future, held together by a thread of love, longing and the treasures of literature. About the Author: Rukmini Bhaya Nair is Professor of Linguistics and English at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. She has been the recipient of many awards and authored several academic books. She has also published three volumes of poetry and her poems have been widely anthologized and translated into languages such as Chinese, Swedish, Italian and Macedonian.
