Description

About the Book :

The time is early 16th century. The Rajput kingdom of Mewar is at the height of its power. It is locked in war with the Sultanates of Delhi, Gujarat and Malwa. But there is another deadly battle being waged within Mewar itself. who will inherit the throne after the death of the Maharana? The course of history, not just of Mewar but of the whole of India, is about to be changed forever.

At the centre of Cuckold is the narrator, heir apparent of Mewar, who questions the codes, conventions and underlying assumptions of the feudal world of which he is a part, a world in which political and personal conduct are dictated by values of courage, valour and courtesy; and death is preferable to dishonour.

A quintessentially Indian story, Cuckold has an immediacy and appeal that are truely universal.

( Cuckold is) a fascinating book, a sort of fantastic marriage between the Thomas Mann of Royal Highness and the Lady Murasaki. - Gore Vidal

Cuckold is a historical fiction at its best. - Khushwant Singh

Astonishingly for a book of this size, like a young river cutting through our resistance to facing yet another literary door-stopper, it's both deep and swift. Nagarkar has set a superb precedent with his third novel. - Outlook

The strength of Cuckold lies in Nagarkar's powerful prose and imagery. You just don't read about the colours of Mewar, the futility of war, and the wonder of being in love - you experience them. - The Statesman
