Sindu is a genderqueer Tamil-American author, born in Sri Lanka who moved to the United States aged 7. Sindu joins us to talk about her latest book ‘Blue-Skinned Gods’ which follows the story of a young boy born with blue skin who people believe to be the tenth human incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. Sindu’s family tried to force her into an arranged marriage which became a theme of her debut novel ‘Marriage of a Thousand Lies’ which followed the story of two gay South-Asian Americans who married in order to stay in the closet. The book was selected by the American Library Association as a Stonewall Honour Book.
