“This ability to laugh at one’s own self, while in no way negating the very real struggles with sexuality and the outer forms it takes, is a definition of not only good sense of humour but also a deeply intelligent good sense of humour.”
– Neel Mukherjee in his review of Kari (Biblio:)
They were inseparable – until the day they jumped. Ruth, saved by safety nets, leaves the city. Kari, saved by a sewer, crawls back into the fray of living. With Angel, Lazarus, and the girls of Crystal Palace forming the chorus to her song, she explores the dark heart of smog city – loneliness, sewers, sleeper success, death – and the memory of her absentee Other. Sensuously illustrated and livened by wry commentaries on life and love, Kari gives a new voice to graphic fiction in India.
