An autobiographical interpretative work, The Children of Nature is an attempt to understand the role of spirituality and its social relevance. Susan Visvanathan also tries to comprehend the volatility of the town of Tiruvannamalai: abode of Ramana Maharshi.

In a remarkable new form, Susan Visvanathan's inter-linked stories pick up voices, names, ideas and lives at various points in the narrative to knot them elsewhere, in another story, time and place. The result is the evocation of a community, born of Puthenkavu, scattered as far as Belfast, Zurich, London, Rome and Casablanca, with the memories of one character touching the life of another: Centuries ago, Puthenkavu had been a coastal village; now only the sand remained to prove it. It was almost thirty miles inland but when the storms came, one was at once reminded of the sea. Here, in the da... View more info

In this strange and haunting novel, Rashmi, a woman and a writer, lives out an obsessive, everyday existence. The landscape that she inhabits and writes about - with its backdrop of marriage and friendship, love and death, perfection and madness - is at once tempestuous, brutal and delicate: nothing seems in consonance, yet there exists the symmetry of a beating heart, a dripping tap. A modern novel, where the subconscious reveals itself in a manner funny and violent. Printed Pages: 153. View more info
