She of the Mountains is an illustrated novel by Vivek Shraya, the author of the Lambda Literary Award finalist God Loves Hair. Shraya weaves a passionate, contemporary love story between a man and his body, with a re-imagining of Hindu mythology. Both narratives explore the complex ways that we are formed and transformed by love, and show how the process of learning to love and be loved by another can ultimately, and sometimes painfully, bring us back to ourselves.

A remarkable piece of prose, very short but astonishingly far-reaching. A love story, a bildungsroman and a romp through Hindu mythology all rolled up into one delicious package. Elegantly illustrated with a set of clever, whimsical drawings entirely in black, white and green.

A bit short and meandering, but absolutely beautifully written. I love the discussion of bisexuality and not fitting in as straight OR gay.

Edmonton-born author Vivek Shraya's playful exploration of queer identity layers Hindu mythology with contemporary life.
