The Startup Wife

Tahmima Anam in conversation with Janice Pariat

JLF First Edition is delighted to host the virtual launch of Tahmima Anam's latest work, The Startup Wife, published by Penguin Random House India.

Celebrated British-Bangladeshi author Tahmima Anam’s latest book, The Startup Wife, is a brutally honest yet humorous mediation on marriage, faith and aspiration. Following the journey of a newly married couple’s tryst with an exclusive tech incubator called Utopia, which allows people to perform religious rituals online, the narrative pulsates with undertones of technology and apocalyptic anxieties rooted within a cautionary tale. In conversation with poet and writer Janice Pariat, Anam explores the precarious balance between gender dynamics, startup culture and true love.
