Desani's mystical epic Hali and the twenty-three stories collected here deepen and extend a literary vision of unquestioned originality. Hali is a masterpiece of lyrical, haunting beauty. The stories which follow reveal the fabulist side of Desani. With satire, irony and winsome comedy, the author takes us on incredible visits into the sacred and the profane.
This work is impressive in its use of religious and personal mythology - and lushly descriptive of a sensibility and a culture that is part English, part Indian, and uniquely Desani's own.
