The Painted Alphabet: A Novel Based on a Balinese Tale (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Based on a Balinese epic poem, The Painted Alphabet is a tale of magic, depravity, spiritual ambition and love. Hailed by the New Yorker as "dazzling little gem of a novel", Diana Darling's novel follows the adventures of two Balinese brothers, Siladri and Made Kerti who make very different choices in life. Siladri, driven to find an explanation for his era's evil, seeks the teaching of a holy man. Made Kerti stays home. In the course of their adventures, good and evil clash all around them, identities are exchanged, lost and found, and modern and traditional cultures collide.
