DEEP SINGH BLUE is work of ferocious bravery, intelligence, and art.

Thank you to Alex Shakar for the incredibly generous blurb, which he assures me is heartfelt.

“This is no picturesque coming of age. In an immigrant family and an adopted land both straitjacketed by denial and rage, it’s an open question—and a propulsive one—whether Deep Singh’s lashings out to save himself will lead to salvation or destruction. Deep Singh Blue is work of ferocious bravery, intelligence, and art.”
