Product Description


" "The Sound of the Kiss" reads fluently, and with dialogue of a markedly contemporary flavor... This tale is predominantly comic and fun-loving in tone, but it remains a great masterpiece for all that." -- Bradley Winterton, "Taipei Times"


Enormous in scope, brilliant in content, rich in literary and religious meanings.... a great read. Every page has something wonderful, memorable and touching.

(Wendy Doniger, author of The Implied Spider and translator of The Rig Veda.)

HASH(0xa820fca8) out of 5 stars Telugu literary work in English Feb. 24 2011
By Sai K. Reddy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a translation of an ancient poet who was a member of a group of poets considered the eight literary elephants of Telugu language and served highly regarded King of a South Indian Empire in the 15-16th century, Sri Krishnadevaraya.
It is a kind of spiritual fantasy that takes for granted many Hindu spiritual ideas. The author weaves a very entertaining fable using these ideas using some creative literary tricks that were considered novel in those days. The richness of Hindu spiritual philosophy is easier to appreciate when presented in the form of stories.
