Summary:
"This book investigates representations of same-sex desire in Indian literature and film from the 1970s to the present day. Through a detailed analysis of texts by authors like Vikram Seth, and films like Deepa Mehta's Fire, it argues that an initially Euro-American homosexuality is reinvented as it comes into contact with Indian culture"-- Provided by publisher.
