Suddenly, Amid The Compulsive Socialising And Irony-clad Banter, There Is The Possibility Of Something More. And Then There Is Varanasi. A Freelance Writer Arrives To Do A Travel Piece. Just A Short Visit- Time To Take In The Impossible Traffic, The Dubious Waters Of The Ganges, The Ordure-streaked Ghats And Multifarious Gods; And To Encounter Destiny. A Tale Of Two Very Different Cities That Appear Surprisingly Similar. Two Separate Stories That May, In Fact, Be One. Ingenious And Vastly Entertaining, Jeff In Venice, Death In Varanasi Is A Novel About Love, Death-and The Various Processes Of Transformation.
