When I Hit You or a Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife
By Meena Kandasamy
Seduced by politics, poetry and an enduring dream of building a better world together, the unnamed narrator falls in love with a university assistant professor. Moving with him to a rain-washed coastal town, she speedily learns that what for her is a bond of love is for him a contract of ownership.
As he sets about reducing her to his idealized version of an obedient wife, bullying her and devouring her ambition of being a writer in the process, she attempts to push back – a resistance he resolves to break with violence and rape.
At once the chronicle of an abusive marriage and a celebration of the invincible power of art, the book When I Hit You or a Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife is a smart, fierce and courageous take on traditional wedlock in modern India.
