Gower Street Presents is a new strand of events dedicated to championing the most exciting new literary fiction. Expect off-beat, original and – as always – unashamedly feminist writing. Book your tickets to this event here.

Meena Kandasamy is widely recognised as one of India’s boldest young writers; her debut novel The Gyspy Goddesswas longlisted for The Dylan Thomas Prize and The DSC Prize for South Asian Literature. Her second novel When I Hit You: Or the Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife is a fierce and provocative look at domestic violence, gender politics and marriage in Modern India. It has been praised by #Readwomen as ‘probably one of the most important and shocking and poetic books of 2017’.


Join Meena in conversation with Waterstones Gower Street’s Elizabeth Morris, as she discusses her courageous new book.
