What is the act of creation? What does it take to survive? And can you have rebirth without destruction? Loosely inspired by the Hindu trinity of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the sustainer/protector, and Shiva the destroyer, THE DISPLACED HINDU GODS TRILOGY by Aditi Brennan Kapil posits that deities dwell among us in the bodies of the most unexpected underdogs. Identity, post-colonialism, puberty, and love are remythologized — history is made new in these three hilarious and heartbreaking coming of age stories.

SHIV

Shiv, named for the Destroyer God, sails the cosmic ocean on a makeshift raft piled high with the psychic residue of post-colonialism. Drawn by distant radio signals, she navigates the poetry of her past and the possibilities of love in a soaring, fantastical journey about the destruction that leads to rebirth.
