ONCE UPON AN ELEPHANT is a contemporary tale of Hindu deity Ganesh and what happens when worlds, cultures, and stories collide. A whimsical, contemporary retelling of the creation story of Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu deity, ONCE UPON AN ELEPHANT is rife with humour and political satire.
When the police find the remains of a young man’s head and an elephant’s body, they assume a murder has been committed, and the case goes to trial with the suspected killer. But the appearance of Vighnesvara, a manifestation of Ganesh with a a young man’s body and an elephant’s headn, in the courtroom of ultra-conservative Judge McEchern throws things into chaos. Around the world statues of Ganesh are drinking offered milk, and poor Judge McEchern has troubles enough with his carnival court: witnesses who testify in languages other than English, testimony from an accused who grows extra arms at will, and a murder victim who refuses to stay dead.
Ganesh is known as the lord of obstacles, and ONCE UPON AN ELEPHANT is strewn with them, twisting, turning, and thwarting expectations about race, class, and sexuality, all within an engaging and page-turning murder mystery.
