Meena Kandasamy and Salma in conversation with Manasi Subramaniam

Women, Dreaming, a beautiful novel by writer and activist Salma, translated exquisitely from Tamil by Meena Kandasamy, captures the lives of women in a tiny Muslim village in Tamil Nadu. Salma's storytelling enters this interior world of women, held together by love, demarcated by religion, comforted by the courage in dreaming of better futures. Writer and activist Salma is also the author of acclaimed novel The Hour Past Midnight. Author, poet, translator and activist Meena Kandasamy's latest novel Exquisite Cadavers has won critical accolades around the world. Manasi Subramaniam is Executive Editor and Head of Literary Rights at Penguin Random House India.
