GENRE :FICTION (DEBUT)
QUICK TAKE: Addictive story of a young girl's disappearance set amidst pre-independence Tamil society and devadasi culture
Thanjavur, the 1920s. One night, the young devadasi Kanaka disappears and, as if in her place, a statue of a woman in pure gold mysteriously appears in the temple to which she was to be dedicated.
Many villagers assume that Kanaka has turned into the girl made of gold. Others are determined to search for her.Through the story of Kanaka’s disappearance, Gitanjali Kolanad gives us a beautifully realized world – of priests, zamindars and devadasis, and of art, desire and their dark reverse sides. Girl made of gold is a mystery, thrillingly told, and also a moving human story of the pursuit of love and freedom.
