Synopsis

What did Arundhati Roy do between the publication of her Booker-winning debut The God of Small Things in 1997 and her extraordinary follow-up, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness two decades later? In a stunning new book of essays, we have the definitive answer. My Seditious Heart is much more than a series of illuminating observations on justice, rights and freedoms: it’s a memoir of the Indian author’s life – as a writer and as a citizen. Roy discusses her novels, her essays and her astonishing experiences with Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Part of our Telling Her Story series of events.
