When I Hit You : Or, A Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife Hardback

Description

From one of India's boldest and most badass young voices, When I Hit You is a dazzling and provocative novel of an abusive marriage. Seduced by politics, poetry and an enduring dream of building a better world together, the unnamed narrator falls in love with a university professor.

Moving with him to a rain-washed coastal town, she swiftly 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 idealised 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.
