Set in Bombay amid the turbulence of India’s surge towards self-rule, Brahma’s Dream relates the story of thirteen-year-old Mohini, an unforgettable character whose medical problems and special wisdom set her apart from the world around her….
A joyous and moving novel, astute and reflective, Brahma’s Dream explores the Hindu belief that all life is part of a vast continuum, and that momentous political and social changes, birth, suffering, even death, are only as a twinkling in the eye of a god.
