  • Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold

A historical novel, Encounters Unforeseen: 1492 Retold now dramatizes these events from a bicultural perspective, fictionalizing the beliefs, thoughts, and actions of the Native Americans who met Columbus side by side with those of Columbus and other ... more

  • The Last Gandhi Movie

    by Deepak Mankar

    The Last Gandhi Movie is experimental-historical literary fiction. There are three parallel strands in the narrative: Gandhi, movies and the nameless narrator's capers. The Last Gandhi Movie also experiments with RetroNotes, the new avatar of footnotes/endnotes. RetroNotes works as an integral part of the narrative giving it contextual depth and width. At times, they act as a commentary with contrarian pungency. At others, they behave as a distancing or alienation device. The novel also h... more
