The Armageddon Mandala is the debut novel by writer Gopal Mukerjee, about a small-time private investigator who finds himself in the middle of a planetary holocaust.
The book is being published by upcoming company Revenge Ink, which describes itself as a “revolutionary, subversive publishing company that was launched to showcase cutting edge works”.
Written in first person, the book is a mixture of comedy and fantasy fiction told in first person. Allen Ginsberg leads a life of sunlit ease in the sleepy town of Snowdrop. All that changes when a mysterious stranger makes a lucrative offer Ginsberg canâ€™t refuse.
What starts out as a small, but eccentric assignment quickly turns sour and Ginsberg soon finds himself trapped in a vortex of increasingly bizarre rituals and life-threatening ordeals that defy all reason and explanation.
Gopal Mukerjee is a writer of novels and screenplays. Born in Mumbai and having lived in India, Britain and the United States, he co-founded Revenge Ink his sibling Amita Mukerjee.
They say they want to promote strong voices and take on “emotionally driven and inspiring projects” to encourage edgy “outside-the-box thinking”.
The book hits stores in April.
