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.

Also available as part of the story bundle You Don’t Look Like Your Picture: Stories of Love in the Digital Age, six stories for just $4.99.


Deni Béchard was born in British Columbia to Québécois and American parents and grew up in both Canada and the United States. His recently-published memoir, Cures for Hunger, describes growing up with his father who was a bank robber, and was both an IndieNext pick and Amazon Canada’s editor’s pick as one of the best memoir/biography of 2012. His first novel, Vandal Love, won the 2007 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, both for the best first book in Canada and for the best overall first book in the British Commonwealth. It was also nominated for Le Prix du Grand Public Salon du Livre Montréal / La Presse, 2008, as well as the French version of Canada Reads, and in 2012 was on Oprah’s Book Club’s summer reading list. He has done freelance reporting from Northern Iraq as well as from Afghanistan, and has written for a number of magazines and newspapers. His most recent book is Empty Hands, Open Arms: the Race to Save Bonobos in the Congo and Make Conservation Go Viral.
