The Death of Vishnu

The Death of Vishnu

READ REVIEWS

In Manil Suri’s debut novel, Vishnu, the odd-job man, lies dying on the staircase of an apartment building while around him unfold the lives of its inhabitants: warring housewives, lovesick teenagers, a grieving widower.

“Enchanting…Suri’s novel achieves an eerie and memorable transcendence.” —Time

In a fevered state, Vishnu looks back on his love affair with the seductive Padmini and wonders if he might actually be the god Vishnu, guardian of the entire universe.
