Brilliantly exploring the nature of desire and spirituality in a changing society, Arresting God in Kathmandu records the echoes of modernization in love and family.
Husbands and wives bound together by arranged marriages, are driven elsewhere by the basic human desire for connection and transcendence in a city where gods are omnipresent, privacy is elusive and family defines identity. Psychologically rich and astonishingly acute, Arresting God in Kathmandu is a potent voice in contemporary fiction.
