Mad Sisters of Esi

Within our universe, there is another universe growing.

Myung and Laleh are keepers of the whale of babel. They roam within its cosmic chambers, speak fables of themselves, and pray to an enigmatic figure they know only as “Great Wisa.”


To Laleh, this is everything.

For Myung, it is not enough.

Filled with academia, fables, and dreams, sweeping across three landscapes, and featuring a museum of collective memory and a festival of madness, MAD SISTERS OF ESI asks: in the wilderness of this world, what will you choose to hold on to?

Coming Winter 2023.

Advance Praise for Mad Sisters of Esi

Tashan Mehta is one of the most gifted, original writers you’ll ever read. MAD SISTERS shows us, again, her skill with both the cosmic and the deeply personal. All of it is magical.

- Samit Basu, author of CHOSEN SPIRITS and THE CITY INSIDE

Sometimes a fantasy comes along so startling and so keenly felt that it changes the way you look at the world for the better. Wonderfully immersive, deeply pleasurable and utterly original, the MAD SISTERS OF ESI is a classic in the making and the best book I’ve read in years.

- Helen Marshall, author of THE MIGRATION and World Fantasy Award winner
