• "Ka is a dizzying, erudite incursion into sacred texts, which throbs with erotic, violent and enigmatic tales"

  • "The very best book about Hindu mythology that anyone has ever written"

    Wendy Doniger
  • "An elegant compendium of classical Indian myths and legends...no cotemporary Indian writer would be able to match such erudition and originality as Calasso displays in Ka"

  • "To read Ka is to experience a giddy invasion of stories - brilliant, enigmatic, troubling, outrageous, erotic, beautiful...these stories are superbly narrated"
