Set in Nepal, The Memory Of Leaves, Manan Karkis first novel, is an exploration of the mythology of autobiography. The book is constructed around three first hand accounts of similar events, events shaped more by the fiction of language and ego than the actuality of fact. Karkis deliberate and poised prose, like that of John Banville or Paul Auster, works through the relationships between fiction, memory and reality, resulting in a fascinating competent and complex debut.
