Award-winning novelist Deni Béchard effortlessly intertwines personal, familial, and national history in “Kali Yuga,” a moving story about two half-brothers and their search for meaning and identity at the turn of the 21st century.
Andrew is a self-absorbed Canadian intellectual and Hugh a roving farm boy from rural Virginia. While Andrew struggles to launch his academic career and settle down with his girlfriend, Hugh wanders the earth in a never-ending quest to reinvent himself. With confidence, empathy, and humor, Béchard chronicles their complex relationship from their first meeting as teenagers through their fraught and halting efforts to define themselves as brothers, lovers, and men.
