One of the inspirations for “Slights” was the Bhagavad Gita. I read that book when I was young. Well, I didn’t read it; I looked at the pictures. Especially the pictures of hell. An alcoholic in a bar having molten lead poured down tjhis throat. An adulterous woman, her diaphanous gown in rags about her, being menaced by a terrifying demon.
All drawn in the some loving detail as was Krisna and Rhadarani, and the cowgirls.
The images have stayed with me. I couldn’t find any on the ‘net, and my copy of the Bhagavad Gita is in storage. But I was always fascinated with idea that we all create our own hell through our own actions.
Joanne at The Book Zombie reviews “Slights” and she found this idea intriguing. This is another thoughtful and intense review.
