This is a beautiful use of prose to create art. The only issue was sometime it wasn't clear that the perspective was switching between characters. This is a small complaint because I think it was an intentional blur between their person hood.

WOW!
A remarkable piece of prose, very short but astonishingly far-reaching. A love story, a bildungsroman and a romp through Hindu mythology all rolled up into one delicious package. Elegantly illustrated with a set of clever, whimsical drawings entirely in black, white and green.

A bit short and meandering, but absolutely beautifully written. I love the discussion of bisexuality and not fitting in as straight OR gay.

Edmonton-born author Vivek Shraya's playful exploration of queer identity layers Hindu mythology with contemporary life.
