I will admit very honestly that I could not finish this book. I made it haltingly until the half way point at which time I abandoned it completely. It is not a boring book nor is it slow. It is just that oddball book that never made much sense to me, nor did it appear coherent at any point of time.
The author who writes in my native Tamil language is well known and I was curious to read one of his translated works.
If you want to read a book unlike any other, and I stress, unlike any other, try this one out. It is just out there aAnd totally didn't work for me.

Format: Paperback
Beautiful modern hallucinatory collage of ideas, vignettes, and characters in Tamil. One of my favorite books! I came to this as a fan of transgressive literature and was not disappointed. I wish more people knew about this book, I intend to keep my copy forever.

Zero degree is a very bold experiment by Indian writer Charu Nivedita. Its one of the best novels I have ever read.
