Narada’s Children: A Visionary Tale of Two Cities by Woody Carter

Narada’s Children is a dazzling work of visionary fiction—a spiritual tale of two cities that brings together mystical elements from a diversity of religious traditions to connect far-flung communities with a common African heritage.

Firmly rooted in the Ramayana of India, the narrative begins in an unforgiving desert expanse in the Horn of Africa during the late nineteenth century. Narada is wandering, without provisions, under a curse that’s the result of his own act of deception.
