The Palace of Illusions is a 2008 novel by award-winning novelist and poet. It was released. The novel is a rendition of the Hindu epic as told from 's (Panchaali's) viewpoint, namely, that of a woman living in a patriarchal world. As summarizes the plot, 'Smart, resilient, and courageous Panchaali, born of fire, marries all five of the famously heroic Pandava brothers, harbors a secret love, endures a long exile in the wilderness, instigates a catastrophic war, and slowly learns the truth about Krishna, her mysterious friend.' Reviews [ ] • '.it's really intriguing to find a book that deals differently with Draupadi - not a Manushi article or a Gender Studies tract on 'Mythical Women and Agency', but a proper story, like Vyasa's epic, where Draupadi begins. The 'mysterious woman' style of narration is unmistakably Divakaruni's.' Renuka Narayanan, Hindustan Times • 'Is Divakaruni's novel a usefully accessible version of a remote cultural artifact, or a case of forcing a remarkable quart into a conventional pint pot?'
