Karnali Blues

Karnali Blues, by Buddhisagar, is the most widely read Nepali novel to have appeared in the last twenty years. As it recounts the evolution of a father-son relactionship- a son's search for approval, a father's small acts of kindness and forgiveness, a son's fears for his father's dignity as his fortunes and faculties begin to fail-the reader is deeply drawn into young Brisha Bahadur's world. His father is kind and idealistic: his mother, though she is kind too, is often frustrated and irascible. The characters in this book are some of the most carefully drawn and authentic in all of Nepali literature.
