One month after helping launch his much awaited new novel at the Jaipur Literature Festival, and elsewhere in India, Manil Suri makes this welcome Elliott Bay return for The City of Devi (W.W. Norton). This is the third in a remarkable series started by The Death of Vishnu and The Age of Shiva. "The City of Devi combines, in a magician's feat, the thrill of Bollywood with the pull of a thriller. Set in a city at the brink of the end, this is a fiercely imagined story of three souls haunted by a love that will change their most elemental ideas of identity. Manil Suri's bravest and most compassionate book." – Kiran Desai. "The novel is driven by love and hope ... Suri's dynamic, unabashed voice leaves one ... happily, perpetually off-balance ... [Vibrant] and compelling." – Publishers Weekly
