Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Varun Sathiyaseelan

Fiction • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Varun Sathiyaseelan is a kind-sounding narrator for this modern parable about a clash between expectations of divinity and human frailty. When Kalki is born with blue skin, his parents are convinced he is divine. Sathiyaseelan draws listeners close to the boy's confused and emotional interior monologues. He moves us steadily through Kalki's unusual childhood, which he spends performing many signs of divinity--only to break away from the pressures of being a god to pursue a life in America. This is a dramatic, intriguing story expertly told by a gifted narrator. Listeners will be finding excuses to go on walks or errands just to hear what happens next. Fans of international literature will fall in love with this unique coming-of-age novel. M.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2022]
