`Blending history and myth, Divakaruni brings a feminist twist to the Mahahbarata, creating her own Indian epic about the wife of the legendary five Pandava brothers.' --The Times
`Divakaruni's languid and elegant prose remains seductive as it reimagines the woman at the heart of the story and weaves myth into a modern idiom.'
Be taken back to a time that is half-history, half-myth, and wholly magical . . .
Narrated by Panchaali, the wife of the five Pandava brothers, The Palace of Illusions finally gives a woman’s take on the timeless tale that is the Mahabharata. Tracing Panchaali’s life from fiery birth and lonely childhood, where her beloved brother is her only true companion; through her complicated friendship with the enigmatic Krishna; to marriage, motherhood, and her secret attraction to the mysterious man who is her husbands’ most dangerous enemy, it’s a deeply human story about a woman born into a man’s world.
Praise for Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni:
‘A dazzling tale of misbegotten dreams and desires, woven with poetry and story teller magic’ AMY TAN on The Mistress of Spices
‘Divakaruni is a brilliant storyteller; she illuminates the world with her artistry, and shakes the reader with her love’ JUNOT DIAZ on The Vine of Desire
