Hari Kunzru: Gods Without Men
Driven by the energy and cunning of Coyote, the mythic, shape-shifting trickster, Gods Without Men is full of big ideas, yet centered on flesh-and-blood characters who converge in the desert. Viscerally gripping and intellectually engaging, it is above all a heartfelt exploration of the search for pattern and meaning in a chaotic universe.
Hari Kunzru, the author of the novels, The Impressionist, Transmission, and My Revolutions, is the recipient of many major literary awards, including the Pushcart Prize. Granta has named him one of the best young British novelists. His work has been translated into twenty-one languages. His short stories and journalism have appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, The New Yorker, the London Review of Books, Wired, The Times of India, and the New Statesman.
In 2010 Kunzru was the keynote speaker at the European Writers Parliament in Istanbul. He currently lives in New York City.
"Gods Without Men is a dazed, erudite and unforgettable novel"
