ONEONTA – Hartwick College Professor of Religious Studies Sandy Huntington’s debut novel, “Maya,” has just been published by Wisdom Books/Simon & Schuster.

“Maya,” which means “illusion” in Sanskrit, is filled with rich observations and arresting reflections, mining the porous border between memory and imagination, dealing with themes of sex, loss, and redemption.   It is set in India in 1975, and is an extended meditation on the unraveling of identity.

A description of the book from the Simon & Schuster website reads:

“It is 1975 and India is in turmoil,” Simon & Schuster’s website reads.  “American Stanley Harrington arrives to study Sanskrit philosophy and escape his failing marriage. When he finds himself witness to a violent accident, he begins to question his grip on reality.
