“A captivating debut. Precise, beautiful and bold.” - Junot Díaz

Startlingly beautiful, Half Gods brings together the exiled, the disappeared, the seekers.
Following the fractured origins and destines of two brothers named after demigods from the ancient epic, the Mahabharata, we meet a family struggling with the reverberations of the past in their lives. These ten interlinked stories redraw the map of our world in surprising ways: following an act of violence, a baby girl is renamed after a Hindu goddess but raised as a Muslim; a lonely butcher from Angola finds solace in a family of refugees in New Jersey; a gentle entomologist, in Sri Lanka, discovers unexpected reserves of courage while searching for his missing son.
By turns heartbreaking and fiercely inventive, Half Gods reveals with sharp clarity the ways that parents, children, and friends act as unknowing mirrors to each other, revealing in their all-too human weaknesses, hopes and sorrows a connection to the divine.

“These are wonderful stories, finely poised, beautifully written and brimming with a rare wisdom.” - Kanishk Tharoor
