Reviews
Theft of a Tree is wonderful piece, but it's not what you're used to--unless you were born five hundred years ago, in a galaxy far, far away...I had a helluva time, rethinking everything, thanks to this book.--Anthony Madrid "RHINO" (8/1/2022 12:00:00 AM)
Theft of a Tree is one of the great Telugu classics, a work of stunning wit, playfulness, and passion. The elegant, readable, and careful translation--the first ever into English--captures the melody of the original Telugu, one of the most mellifluous of all South Asian languages.--David Shulman
