Meena Kandasamy at Cheltenham Literature Festival

Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

October 10, 2017


From one of the hottest writers in the contemporary fiction scene comes a provocative novel of obsession and love. One of India’s boldest young writers, Meena Kandasamy’s When I Hit You tells a story where passion is overcome by power and turns to violence. Yet is it nonetheless a story of love?

Meena discusses with  2017 Bailey’s Women’s Prize shortlisted author Gwendoline Riley, chaired by Steven Gale.
