The Revised Kama Sutra: A Novel

Publisher : Invisible Man Press

ISBN-13 :

Page : 360 pages

Rating : 4.5/5 from voters

This novel, an Indian sensation, describes a young man's growing up and coming to grips with sexuality with delicious and often-hilarious detail, but it is about much more: political, ironic, and "an indictment of colonialism" (The Hindu). This comic novel of childhood, coming of age, of modern Indian manhood, and an American Dream was described as "humorous and manic" by The Independent of London, and as personifying "the post-Independence Indian male." It has also been adapted for the stage and played to many standing room only audiences. "Hilarious."--Time Out. "Indefatigable good humor, charm"--Publishers Weekly. "A comic timing never seen in any Indian novel to date."--The Indian Express "Should be a recognized classic. An Indian Catcher in the Rye"--Mark Ledbetter, Author and Professor of Linguistics Keywords: Coming of Age, Indian novel, Contemporary India, Indian society, the Male Experience, Literary Fiction, Sexual Repression, Indian Christians, Indian Catholics, Konkani language, Indian Comic Novel, Politically Incorrect, Men and Women, American Dream, Immigrant American Writers, Asian writers, Asian-American fiction
