No dry, academic text, nor preachy screed, "The Outcaste" is a richly layered tale by a master novelist, writing at the top of his stunningly innovative form. It must be even more amazing in its original Malayalam.
Its celebrated author, Matampu Kunjukuttan, has also twice won the Best Screenplay award at the annual All-India Awards (the Indian equivalent of the Oscars). Having visited him at his house in Kerala, I found him to be as endlessly interesting a personality as he is a writer. I will treasure this work.
