Meena Kandasamy: When I Hit You

Lesung & Gespräch I internationales literaturfestival berlin

When a woman falls in love with a university professor and moves with him to a rainy coastal town, she finds out that for him, love is a property contract. He demands obedience, harasses her, and torpedoes her desire to become a writer. »Its beating heart is a universally recognized quest for freedom and meaning in a world where women are still shockingly undervalued.« [Financial Times]
