Varanasi by M. T. Vasudevan Nair

Varanasi, in his trademark austere writing style, is M. T. Vasudevan Nair s latest novel. Non-linear and set through the protagonist s reminiscences, the novel narrates the journey of an aged man, Sudhakaran, through the city of Varanasi, and simultaneously chronicles his life through his thoughts. As a commentary on the human condition, the novel explores the idea of lust and desire pervading through mankind, finding its essence embodied in the culture of the historic city. Translated by Sahitya Akademi Award winner, N. Gopalakrishnan, this work masterfully retains the flavor of the original Malayalam.
