Red Earth and Pouring Rain

by Vikram Chandra
£8.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2007)

Red Earth and Pouring Rain by Vikram Chandra The gods of poetry and death descend on a house in India to vie for the soul of a wounded monkey.
A bargain is struck: the monkey must tell a story, and if he can keep his audience entertained, he shall live.
The result is Red Earth and Pouring Rain, Vikram Chandra's astonishing, vibrant novel.
Interweaving tales of nineteenth-century India with modern America, it stands in the tradition of The Thousand and One Nights, a work of vivid imagination and a celebration of the power of storytelling itself.
