  • Description

    The Gospel of Yudas is revolutionary literature . A story of suffering redeemed by love'--India Today Young and impressionable, Prema is deeply infatuated with Yudas, the enigmatic man who dredges corpses from the bottom of the nearby lake. Longing to be rescued from the tyranny of her father, a former policeman who zealously tortured Naxalite rebels during the Emergency, Prema dreams of escape and finds herself drawn to the Naxal political ideology. Convinced that Yudas was one of the inmates at her father's prison camp, Prema believes that only he can save her. But Yudas is haunted by secrets of his own, and like his biblical namesake Judas Iscariot, he bears the burden of crushing guilt. 'Takes its readers through a perfect journey into the hot, sticky, messy, grimy underbelly of human emotion'--Hindustan Times 'A disquieting book [that mixes] conventional narrative with allegory, hard politics with abstractions about human lives and desires . . . Evocative'--Scroll 'Meera's work is lush in violence and metaphor'--Open

    Could be way better

    The external appearance of the book is awesome, but story is meh...typical angst filled tale which didn't make much sense to me despite trying to understand the psychological implications.
