Ka [9780241399224]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'To read Ka is to experience a giddy invasion of stories - brilliant, enigmatic, troubling, outrageous, erotic, beautiful' The New York Times

'Who?' - or 'ka' - is the question that runs through Roberto Calasso's retelling of the stories of the minds and gods of India; the primordial question that continues to haunt human existence. From the Rigveda to the Upanishads, the Mahabharata to the life of Buddha, this book delves into the corpus of classical Sanskrit literature to re-imagine the ancient Indian myths and how they resonate through space and time.

'The very best book about Hindu mythology that anyone has ever written' Wendy Doniger

'Dazzling, complex, utterly original ... Ka is his masterpiece' Sunday Times


AUTHOR: Roberto Calasso is the author of many books including the international bestseller The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony and The Ruin of Kasch, both parts of a work in progress of which The Unnamable Present is part nine.
