Love in a Dead Language: A Romance by Lee Siegel

"Love in a Dead Language" is a love story, a translation of an Indian sex manual, an erotic farce, and a murder mystery. The hero of this protean comedy is a professor and scholar of Indian studies who laments having never made love to an Indian woman. In his attempt to make this desire a reality, he is murdered. This novel exposes the complicities between the carnal and the intellectual, the erotic and the exotic, the false and the true. 40 line drawings.
