Spirituality and sensuousness, the divine and the carnal, decay and regeneration. These are the ‘themes’ of Divine Music, a work of fiction set in contemporary India. This is the story of Sarika, a young Indian music prodigy, who discovers the dichotomous nature of life as she journeys through the world of music. Offering the reader the unique lens of Indian classical music, Divine Music examines the relationships of guru and pupil, parent and child, husband and wife and, finally, artist in the world. Each of these relationships brings its own complexities to an already complex world that goes on through each death into rebirth. Ultimately, the novel reaffirms our faith in life and the human being’s ability to survive.
