Description


Nonfiction. "Only a writer who is intimately familiar with the many thousands of Hindu legends could compile this book. Devdutt Pattanaik not only quotes the legends themselves, but also offers his own extensive commentary to place the stories in proper context. Hindu ideas of divine androgyny offer a basis for greater acceptance of gender diversity in the future" -Walter L. Williams, PhD, Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies, University of Southern California; Editor, International Gay and Lesbian Review.
