Read full description of the books The Alchemy of Desire:Garbage of Higher Order!
Sexual extravagance can be employed as a shocking factor, especially in transgressive fictions, case in point Charles Bukowski. Just a shocking phenomenon, you can’t expect to glue your readers only with that. There is so much wetness. You might skid on it and damage your cerebellum even before crossing 50 pages, if you are not very careful. If you don’t get what that wetness is, you aren’t perverse enough. At the 100th page, you can’t wait to get through the motion (pun intended).
After about 120 pages, a back story starts in 1980s. Tarun J Tejpal must have thought, “It is not a soft porn, this should represent whole India, North India at the least. Let me throw in Punjab insurgency!” So, we get bloods, guts and all gory things. Of course, more wetness! To Mr. Tejpal, chimneys resemble phallus, rhino horn resembles phallus and anything which stands up resembles only one thing. Seriously?! D:<
Another backstory. So this time ’Partition of India’ it is! Not much chance for wetness with characters involved. So what do we get from this bold writer. A hindu woman crosses border with her money stuffed inside vagina.
Yet another backstory. More back stories for characters in that back story. After 350 pages, the book actually picks up pace and reads like a decent fiction. Not just mere wetness, you get flooded at this point. Onanism, Sodomism, Mughal Harem, Botanical Tour and Birdwatch thrown in between. What do we get then. Sushi with a gulp of Sake. Yes, Mr.Holmes uncovers a mystery in 'Rashomon' style.
Without a doubt, it is a daring, bold, beautiful, intense, sensual and hard hitting fiction. Where is the catch then. Everything is a little bit too much and you end up with a verbal diarrhea.

Naipaul declared, “At last – a new and brilliantly original novel from India.” Translated into more than a dozen languages, in France the book won the Prix Millepages and was the finalist for the prestigious Prix Femina.

He has just recently stepped down from his position as editor of the Tehelka magazine in light of charges of repeated sexual harassment brought against him by a female journalist.
