The Gypsy Goddess (Paperback)Meena Kandasamy (author)
- In stock
The provocative debut by the Women's Fiction Prize 2018-shortlisted author of When I Hit You.
When women take to protest, there is no looking back. Sometimes it is over working conditions, other times, perhaps, a strike for higher wages. And so, in a hungry, back-broken community of villages in Tamil Nadu, a group of rural workers begin to defy their landlords. The landlords, in turn, vow to violently crush them. But these punishments only serve to strengthen the villagers' resistance - after all, when starvation is the only option, what else is there to lose...?
