TWO BLURBS FOR MY UPCOMING BOOK, THE SINGING GURU


The cover of the book came yesterday, and two awesome blurbs :
Kamla Kapur has created a Sikh parallel of Homer’s Odyssey in the re-imagining of its founder’s spiritual journey, cleverly recounted in the voice of an impish acolyte.  As with that work, the prose melts into melifluous poetry, music to the soul.  In company with the Sikh spiritual leader, Guru Nanak, we travel from magical place to magical place throughout India and are reminded again and again of what values should inform our life. You wait until the saga is over to exhale and still wish there were more.  A ripping read.
Thomas Hoover, author of Zen Culture and The Moghul
 
 Rich imagination, anchored by the spirit of the Janamsakhi tradition, brings alive the story of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism. Kamla Kapur has written a gripping book in a style that is both simple and lucid. Her reinterpretation of the Janamsakhis should find wide resonance among readers.
Roopinder Singh, author of Guru Nanak: His Life and Teachings
