Summary/Review: "Young and homeless on the streets of Toronto, a fugitive from an unquiet past that has followed him from his hometown in Northern Ontario, Benjamin Doheney is sustained by unusual sources of strength: his devotion to Sanskrit, the ancient literary language of India; the love he shares with Aditi--a PhD student in Sanskrit at the University of Toronto--and his vision of a future with her in India, a land he has never seen. Before they can move on, they must extricate her from the clutches of her twisted PhD supervisor, with the help of his old enemy, a good professor emeritus who has taken Ben under his wing, and of Moksha Das, a homeless alcoholic poet and scholar, Ben's difficult guru and friend. When a mysterious murder on campus threatens to draw the police's attention to Moksha, Ben and Aditi contrive to remove him to his old ashram north of the city. But events now begin to spiral out of control, inexorably drawing them all towards a bloody culmination which the couple's hopes for a distant future peace may not survive."--
