Praise

“Skillful manipulation of time enables Sudhir Kakar to reclaim a space between history and imagination. A beautifully written novel.”—The Telegraph

“This heroic master [Gandhi] became at the same time a political myth, a spiritual icon, and a real man, an astonishing mix of fragility and determination, greatness and oddness. It is this intimate Gandhi which sets the scene for this magnificent work by Sudhir Kakar, one of the principal figures in contemporary Indian thought and . . . a novelist of repute.”—Le Monde

“A brilliantly woven narrative, with facts as the warp and imagination as the weft. . . . Kakar’s is a marvelous effort to peel away the layers surrounding Gandhi.”—The Hindu

“Not only brilliantly researched but also grippingly narrated. With his third novel, he has established a unique niche for himself in the world of Indian English fiction.”—India Today

"Sudhir Kakar’s novel The Seeker is a seamless tapestry of the real and the invented that succeeds on many levels at once. Upon the underpinnings of history he has erected a moving tale of the uncertain territory that lies between love and devotion."—Keith Heller, author of The Woman Who Knew Gandhi
