Description

Praise for Blue-Skinned Gods

"This marvelous novel offers up the most extraordinary circumstance in which to live a life. It delivers everything I didn't know I desperately wanted: snake bites, ink baths, god-energy, gurus, post-punk music, viral videos, redemption, and an unforgettable character asking all the big questions. What am I and what am I capable of? In the asking comes revelations on the nature of love, power in friendship, weight of dogma, and the visceral seeping together of diverse cultures. These pages left me with the best case of culture shock, and in awe over Sindu's storytelling talent."
--Devin Murphy, national bestselling author of The Boat Runner and Tiny Americans

"Blue-Skinned Gods is a memorable and vivid coming-of-age story that feels timely in its pursuit of exploring the meaning of truth and how we know what to believe about ourselves and others. Kalki's journey from an isolated ashram in India to the kaleidoscope of New York City's clubs and streets is captivating. This is a wonderful book about family, friendship, and miracles."
--Elise Hooper, author of Fast Girls, Learning to See, and The Other Alcott

"SJ Sindu has written an important novel about Sri Lankan immigrant culture. Here, the intersections of migration, sexuality and culture are explored in loving and heartbreaking detail. A book that reveals the secrets of a community caught between East and West."
--Nayomi Munaweera, author of Island of a Thousand Mirrors
