A young boy loses his innocence; a young man takes it back by storm. In
this beautifully symmetrical novel, we see the cycle of innocence to evil
to innocence completed, the circle closed.
Vasudevan's English works in the veins like champagne, sparkling and
fizzing and making one happily dizzy. I'd have liked to see him hold a
little more tightly to the conventions of English grammar, and I do feel
the book needs editing, but it will take a special editor with extreme
delicacy of touch to do justice to this book, and to this very gifted
author's unique and distinctive voice.
The Contract is available from AMAZON in paperback, hardcover and ebook.
