"A stunning novel, proof that Manil Suri is a major storyteller of heart and intelligence."--Amy Tan The Age of Shivais at once a powerful story of a country in turmoil and an "unflinchingly honest" portrait of maternal love--"intricately interwoven with the ancient rites and myths" (Booklist) crucial to India's history. Meera, the narrator, is seventeen years old when she catches her first glimpse of Dev, performing a song so infused with passion that it arouses in her the first flush of erotic longing. She wonders if she can steal him away from Roopa, her older, more beautiful sister, who has brought her along to see him. It is only when her son is born that Meera begins to imagine a life of fulfillment. She engulfs him with a love so deep, so overpowering, that she must fear its consequences. Meera's unforgettable story, embodying Shiva as a symbol of religious upheaval, placesThe Age of Shivaamong the most compelling novels to emerge from contemporary India. Reading group guide included.

Manil Suri was born in Bombay. He is a mathematics professor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
