Building Babel
Suniti Namjoshi
Instant Download

Every retelling of a myth is a reworking of it. Every hearing or reading of a myth is a recreation of it. It is only when we engage with a myth that it resonates, becomes charged and recharged with meaning. And so it is in Building Babel, a book that re-engages with myth through the cyberworld, where worlds intersect and are transformed. Exploratory and experimental, Suniti Namjoshi's work is studied around the world for its transformative creations.

‘... Namjoshi creates some wonderful moments in the course of her book.’ 

John Burnside, Marvels and Tales: Journal of Fairy-Tale Studies

Building Babel has stories within stories. It can be likened to a game of chess; the moves the reader will make depend on the degree of sophistication they wish to lend to the reading.’ 

Heather Nix, The Republican

‘Building Babel [is] an important development in Namjoshi’s writing and an interesting experiment for fiction in general.’ 

Jenny Pausacker, The Age
