Time is like a wooden swing rocking back and forth in an ancestral home in this translation of Era Murukan’s critically acclaimed Tamil novel Arasoor Vamsam. Two brothers from the future bring odd gifts, a king is obsessed with dirge music from his neighbour’s gramophone, a mentally challenged brother has an affair with a ghost who smells of bats, an old man tends to levitate in his sleep, the severed foot of a man grows an extra toe and many more imaginative renderings of human folly enliven this funny story of Arasoor and its inhabitants. Set in the colonial period, this highly engaging novel captures changing times by bending time to its will, but ultimately leaves the reader wondering—has anything truly changed?
