dc.description.abstractSituated at the intersection of postcolonial studies, affect studies, and narratology, this essay explores the affective and aesthetic consequences of violence and criminality in Vikram Chandra's Sacred Games. I begin by discussing the minor crimes to be found within its pages, before moving on to address various instances of so-called exceptional criminality. The affective state that emerges out of this combination of the banal and the extraordinary, I argue, could best be described by invoking Sianne Ngai's notion of stuplimity, a conjunction of the stupefying and the sublime that ultimately infiltrates the very tissue of the narrative.en_US
