'I am a fourteenth generation clone and something has gone wrong with me. Not that my DNA is altered, not that I am a mutant. Not that any function need be eliminated. It's nothing obvious. It's terminal, and secret. Let me put it this way: I remember.'

In a world where memory is forbidden and sexuality taboo, Clone 14/54/G is unique. Haunted by her past lives and caught in a struggle between the forces of oppression and those of liberty, language and love, she keeps a secret journal.

Intense, poetic and erotic, Generation 14 is a dazzlingly imaginative and bizarre political satire. Set in the twenty-fourth century the novel journeys through highpoints of India's history to explore ideas of its plural identity and what it means to be human in today's polarized world.

This extraordinary novel is unlike any other coming from the subcontinent, and heralds a new generation of fantasy writing from India. It is a serious and vivid reflection on repression and the fragility of freedoms.
