The acclaimed Kannada writer Vasudhendra has transformed his personal experience of bigotry, shame and tragedy into harrowing but magnificent truth-telling.
Even as he scrutinizes himself, the choices he’s made, the friends and lovers he’s gained and lost, Mohanaswamy dreams of living a simple, dignified life.
These stories of homosexual love and lives made Kannada readers out of their notions of the literary and the palatable.
It is translated to Malayalam by Aash Ashitha. Dc Books published it under the title ‘Mohanaswamy’.
