The City of Devi

Desire. Manil Suri alternates narrators of his novel, The City of Devi, to present different perspectives on the plot. The threat of nuclear annihilation between India and Pakistan provides a backdrop for the tension in the novel. Sarita is searching for her missing husband, Karun. On her journey, she meets the other narrator, Jaz, who is also on a search. As readers learn more about this triangle of characters, their lives become vivid, their strong desires revealed, and the world in which they life laid bare. Suri’s writing is clever and provocative, packed with clear descriptive language and insight into human behavior. Readers who are intrigued should read a sample before plunging into this story.
