'This is my story. And the story of my people.' The Valley of Masks examines the pathologies of power purity and dogma to give us a frightening yet ultimately redemptive vision of the future. In the words of Ashis Nandy critic and social commentator 'This brilliant superbly imaginative but terribly disturbing novel transcends borders cultures reading habits and literary fashions. As a story of the inhumanity of any human search for absolute perfection it probably has no parallel in our literature. As a fable it has a moral that will return to haunt you.'
