Blue Boy Overview

This humorous coming of age narrative tells the story of Kiran, a pre-adolescent South Asian boy coming to grips with a vivid imagination, a passion for color and music, and an emerging sense that he is gay. As it portrays Kiran’s struggles to integrate and understand all the apparently contradictory aspects of himself and his life, the novel explores themes related to the valuing of difference, sexuality and gender, and qualities of spirituality.
