"Compassionate, moving, funny, and wise, Blue Boy is one of the best debut novels I have read in years." David Ebershoff, author of The Danish Girl

Meet Kiran Sharma: lover of music, dance, and all things sensual; son of immigrants, social outcast, spiritual seeker. A boy who doesn't quite understand his lotuntil he realizes he's a god. . .

As an only son, Kiran has obligationsto excel in his studies, to honor the deities, to find a nice Indian girl, and, above all, to make his mother and father proudstandard stuff for a boy of his background. If only Kiran had anything in common with the other Indian kids besides the color of his skin. They reject him at every turn, and his cretinous public schoolmates are no better. Cincinnati in the early 1990s isn't exactly a hotbed of cultural diversity, and Kiran's not-so-well-kept secrets don't endear him to any group. Playing with dolls, choosing ballet over basketball, taking the annual talent show way too seriously. . .the very things that make Kiran who he is also make him the star of his own personal freak show. . .

Surrounded by examples of upstanding Indian Americansin his own home, in his temple, at the weekly parties given by his parents' friendsKiran nevertheless finds it impossible to get the knack of "normalcy." And then one fateful day, a revelation: perhaps his desires aren't too earthly, but too divine. Perhaps the solution to the mystery of his existence has been before him since birth. For Kiran Sharma, a long, strange trip is about to begina journey so sublime, so ridiculous, so painfully beautiful, that it can only lead to the truth. . .

"The best fiction reminds us that humanity is much, much larger than our personal world, our own little reality. Blue Boy shows us a world too funny and sad and sweet to be based on anything but the truth." Chuck Palahniuk New York Times bestselling author
