More about the Author

Amruta Patil, writer and painter, is the author of graphic novels Kari (2008) and Adi Parva: Churning the Ocean (2012). Kari is a tale about friendship, love and death; its eponymous queer heroine steers through Smog City, a magic-realism version of Mumbai. Adi Parva is based on the Mahabharat, the Vishnu Puraan and the tradition of oral storytellers. It was selected as one of 2012’s best graphic novels by comic book historian, Paul Gravett. Amruta is currently working on Adi Parva‘s sequel, Sauptik: Blood and Flowers (tbr Fall 2016).

Amruta, who identifies primarily as a writer, has a freewheeling visual style that incorporates acrylic painting, collage and charcoal. Recurring themes in her work include memento mori, sexuality, myth, sustainable living, and the unbroken thread of stories passed down from storyteller to storyteller through the ages.
