Literature and Fiction Literary

In Tamil Nadu, India, a boy named Kalki, born with blue skin, believes he is the Hindu god Vishnu and that he can perform miracles. The truth, though, is much darker.


As Kalki struggles to extract himself from under his father’s thumb, he must also reconcile with the idea that everything he’s ever been told might not be true. When his father drags him on a tour to America, Kalki seizes his chance to explore what life as an ordinary man might be like.

Pulled between India and America, and his father’s web of control, Kalki must find his true place in the world.
