Publisher's summary

A "Globe 100" Best Book of the Year (The Globe and Mail)
Lambda Literary Award Finalist

In the beginning, there is no he. There is no she.

Two cells make up one cell. This is the mathematics behind creation. One plus one makes one. Life begets life. We are the period to a sentence, the effect to a cause, always belonging to someone. We are never our own.

This is why we are so lonely.

She of the Mountains is a beautifully rendered 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 complexities of embodiment and the damaging effects that policing gender and sexuality can have on the human heart.

Critic reviews

"A cathartic tale simply told." (The Globe and Mail, The Globe 100 of 2014)

"The Hindu gods, with their constantly shifting personas and manifestations, add a clever and thoughtful layer to the novel and highlight the intricacies and power of a love that eclipses gender, time, and conventions." (Publishers Weekly)

"An intoxicating story that thrums and aches with teenage energy." (Edmonton Journal Top Five Books of 2014)
