A Must buy for anyone who enjoys moving stories
Joshi takes his cues for his labyrinthine world from such respected writers as Borges and Garcia Marquez, but The Last Labyrinth is nothing that one might expect. In its entirety it is a story not only of obsession, but of great love, not only of self-destruction, but of salvation. It is a story of memories and huge confusing havelis, and finally of the wonderment of life. Yes, it is hard to describe, and it needs to be read more than once, especially in consideration with the quite different works of Indian English literature with which it is often compared. I find it incredibly sad that this great book is currently out-of-print, but maybe that can be remedied someday so that more people can have access to it.
